|EXCLUSIVE: Chelsea Ace Ola Aina Applies To FIFA To Change Allegiance To Nigeria by tooth4tooth: 10:29pm On May 01, 2017|
Chelsea youngster Ola Aina is expected this week to file his application for a change of allegiance from England to Nigeria, officials have exclusively informed SCORENigeria
“The documentation has been done and in the new week, it will be submitted to FIFA for approval,” a top official told SCORENigeria
“How fast FIFA and the FA in England work on this will determine how soon his application will come through.”
Super Eagles coach Gernot Rohr is very much interested in capping the right fullback, who has already represented England at U16, U17, U18, U19 and u20 levels.
Ola Aina gets Eagles second chance
Ola Aina, whose full names are Temitayo Olufisayo Olaoluwa Aina, has made a big impression on Rohr when he trained with the rest of the squad in London in March.
And with the Eagles desperate to fill up the problematic right fullback position, Rohr wants all the processes of getting the player fast tracked.
However, SCORENigeria has also gathered the 20-year-old Aina has been left out of the week-long training camp in France because his club Chelsea are involved in the FA Cup final against Arsenal, which is fixed for May 27.
Like clubmate Victor Moses, he will therefore miss the friendly against the French island of Corsica now fixed for May 26, a day to the cup final.
Incidentally, Victor Moses also switched his international allegiance from England to Nigeria in 2012 and a year later, he inspired Nigeria to wina third AFCON crown in South Africa.
