Chelsea upcoming full back Ola Aina won’t be joining the Super Eagles of Nigeria in their training camp in France, Owngoalnigeria.com can exclusively reveal.
Aina won’t be involved in the training after coach of Chelsea Antonio Conte included him in his plans for the FA Cup final tie against Arsenal on the 27th of May.
Coach of the Super Eagles of Nigeria Gernot Rohr is a big fan of the full back after his impressive performance in training when the Super Eagles converge for two friendly games last month, but only played once against Senegal after Burkina Faso failed to show up for the second game due to visa issues to London.
Aina was heavily tipped to make his debut for Nigeria in a friendly game for Nigeria against Corsica Island on the 26th of May, but Chelsea’s FA Cup commitment means he will be excused from the camping.
Aina, Victor Moses and Alex Iwobi have been permitted by Rohr to miss the France camp, which was organised to help the players prepare adequately well for their AFCON 2019 Qualifiers against South Africa in June.
