Super Eagles and Torino of Italy defender, Ola Aina has expressed delight after helping his side earn a hard-fought 1-0 victory away at Chievo Verona, admitting the team gave their all to secure the important three points, AOIFootball.com reports.

Aina has featured in all of Torino’s league games this season, starting in five, further revealed that the team will be more determined to maintain the momentum ahead of the next international break when they welcome Frosinone.

“It was all about winning; we did everything to bring home the three points and at the end, we succeeded. It wasn’t easy because they defended well in the second half but we managed to play more, finding the goal in the final minutes.

“We have to keep working hard to improve game after game. I think we are growing, but there is still a lot to work on. The next match against Frosinone will not be easy but we will have to play with the same mentality of today (Sunday), doing everything to win,” Aina concluded.

The Chelsea loanee was on for the entire match duration, playing in his much favoured left full-back position. He earned a game rating of 7.4, completing 79% of his passes, won 12 of his duels contested and also made four clearances to wrap up an all-around solid performance.
