Aina spices up AFCON qualifiers


Super Eagles defender Ola Aina has put the onus on his team mates  to show what they are made of in the double header 2019 Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON) qualifiers with Libya.

The Nigerian team are third in the Group E with three points from two games.
Torino defender Ola Aina declared this week that the Mediterranean Knights are favourites going into the games because of their first position on the log having accumulated four points, and the on loan Chelsea player has challenged his team mates to respond to the pressure they will face.
“For me these games takes precedence for us. We already know what coach Gernot Rohr wants and what it now needs is something to spice things up,” he told
“We also know what the fans want from the team when we go out in the first of the two games in Uyo.
“This will be the best week for us to go for a walk in the city and feel what the people are talking about. We mustn’t disappoint the fans.
Nigeria will host the first leg at the Godswill Akpabio Stadium in Uyo on Saturday 13th October with the return leg scheduled for the 18,000-capacity Stade Taïeb Mhiri in the city of Sfax, Tunisia on Tuesday 16th October.
