Chelsea FC’s defender who’s on loan to Hull City, Ola Aina could be in line for his first international start next month, Nigeria coach Gernot Rohr has confirmed.
Coach Gernot Rohr started right-back off the bench earlier this month to make his debut as the Super Eagles became the first African side to seal qualification for the 2018 FIFA World Cup in Russia with a win over Zambia.
While the coach is mindful of attaining a strong FIFA ranking ahead of the World Cup draw, he admits the game is a good opportunity to give the fringe players a chance to impress.
”Well, it is a possibility to use the opportunity to see some of the players we have not seen so much of them,” Rohr told reporters.
