Missing Against Brazil, Ola Aina Gets The Medical Green Light To Face UdinesePublished: October 16, 2019
Super Eagles right-back Ola Aina is now available for selection ahead of Torino's clash with Udinese after returning from a short-term injury.
The 23-year-old pulled out of the Nigeria squad that played a 1-1 draw with Brazil due to a domestic injury.
The Chelsea Academy product trained on his own for two days and wasn't given the green light by the club's medical team to join the rest of the squad until Tuesday's workout.
Since joining the Serie A side on a permanent deal in the summer, Aina has featured in seven league matches and he will hope to be in Mazzarri's starting line-up against Udinese who could feature Nigeria's assistant captain William Troost-Ekong in the game week eight fixture at Dacia Arena (Udine).
Meanwhile, Troost-Ekong, who was impressive against the star-studded Brazilians, has played five Serie A games for Udinese so far this season.
He will hope to retain his spot at the heart of Udinese's defence on Sunday.
