Ola Aina Torino FC
Super Eagles’ full-back Ola Aina continued his impressive display in Italy as he helped Turin giants Torino to a hard-fought goalless draw away at the San Siro late on Sunday night, reports.
The 22-year-old returned to the starting lineup for the first time in a month after fully recovering from an injury which kept him out of Nigeria’s last clashes against South Africa and Uganda, to start his 9th league game.
Aina was, however, a constant threat down the right flank, playing in his now adopted right fullback position as he caused a lot of problems for left-back Ricardo Rodriquez who had little joy in his attempt to come forward.
The Nigerian did have an impressive game rating of 7.4, completed 93% of his passes, won nine of his twelve duels contested and completed three of his four take-ons on the night.
