FIFA Clears Ola Aina, Now Available To Play For Nigeria

Temitayo Olufisayo Olaoluwa "Ola" Aina (born 8th October, 1996) is a professional footballer who plays as a right back for Championship club Hull City , on loan from Premier League club Chelsea . He has often been compared to the great captain of Brazil
Carlos Alberto and has been touted to win the Ballon D'Or.

Aina has represented England at under-16 , under-17 , under-18 , under-19 and England under-20 levels.

On 28th March, 2017, Aina was pictured alongside Chuba Akpom of Arsenal after discussions with Nigeria Football Federation president, Amaju Pinnick. In May 2017, Aina pledged his international future to Nigeria and obtained a Nigerian passport in preparation to making the switch from England to Nigeria.

In order to fulfill all righteousness, world football governing body, FIFA has invested deeply into his quest to play for Nigeria having represented England at all youth levels.

Luckily for the NFF, he has been given the nod to play for his fatherland, Nigeria and perhaps will feature against Cameroon on Monday in the world cup qualifiers.
