Hull City Full Back, Ola Aina
has described it as an honour to play for Nigeria as he looks set to
have some minutes on Saturday against Zambia.

Aina recently switched
allegiance from England to Nigeria and told the media on Thursday in
Uyo that it will be a big honour to represent Nigeria.

It is a big honour for me
and I am very happy to wear it (green white green) and to be here
with my team mates and coaching staff.

In the event of me making
my debut, I feel like I am ready,” Aina said.

Aina started as a Chelsea FC
under 11 player and represented the club at under 18, under 19, and
under 21 levels making his first team debut on July 19, 2014 when he
replaced Todd Kane against AFC Wimbledon.

At youth international level,
he has played for England’s under -16, under-17, under-18, under-19
and under-20 teams but insists that the contrast in playing style
will not be a problem.

I have been watching the
Nigerian team for a long time. It is very different from what I am
used to.

But regarding the
physicality, I think I am ready to do my best for the team,” Aina
said.

In May 2017, Aina pledged his
international future to Nigeria. He was invited for the double header
games against Cameroon but his clearance from FIFA did not arrive on
time.
