Top Interceptor Against Udinese, Ola Aina Named In Italian Serie A Team Of The WeekPublished: February 11, 2019
Ola Aina has been recognized for his outstanding performance this past weekend for Torino after he was included in Whoscored.com's Serie A Team of the Week.
The Nigeria international's 31st minute header, his first goal in Torino's colours, secured all three points for the Maroons in a match day 23 fixture against William Troost-Ekong's Udinese at Stadio Olimpico Grande Torino.
In a 4-4-2 formation, Aina was deployed in the right side of midfield, with Roma's Stephan El Shaarawy occupying the left side.
Against Udinese, the Chelsea loanee attempted two shots with both on target, made one key pass, won two aerial duels, was fouled twice and had a passing accuracy of 82.2 percent.
The 22-year-old touched the ball 80 times, and only Cristian Ansaldi racked up more touches than the Nigerian of the 28 players in action.
He also performed well defensively, making three tackles, had a game-high three interceptions and made four clearances over the course of 90 minutes.
