Super Eagles’ defender, Ola Aina came on for his Torino debut during their 1-0 loss at home to AS Roma, AOIFootball.com reports.

The Super Eagles’ player started on the bench but was called on earlier than expected when the injury to Lorenzo De Silvester forced Torino to bring him on just before the half-hour mark.

However, a late second-half strike from Edin Dzeko settled the match but Aina will take a lot of positives from his first league game outside the shores of England.

The Chelsea loanee featured for 63 minutes, earning a match rating of 6.6, making 2 interceptions and winning three of his 5 duels contested. He also completed 100% of his tackles and 88% of his passes.
