Ola Aina is still eligible to play for Super Eagles
Will Ola Aina choose to play for Eagles?
Chelsea youngster Ola Aina is wanted by Nigeria coach Gernot Rohr as he considers his international future with England. He has left himself out of the picture for England’s Under-21s team while he makes a decision on who to represent at international level.
The Super Eagles’ head coach Rohr was asked to clarify his intentions concerning Aina after his side’s 1-1 draw with Senegal on Thursday.
“It is normal to have this situation, when we have very good player [like Ola Aina] who can pick two teams,” Rohr said “We always leave the door open to young talent.”
Aina was in attendance at the match with his family at Barnet FC’s The Hive Stadium and he was seen cheering on Nigeria, as Manchester City‘s Kelechi Iheanacho equalised, after an earlier Moussa Sow strike put Senegal ahead.
