Aina Drops England for Nigeria

Aina Drops England for Nigeria

With an international-break not too far over the horizon, Nigeria have named their squad for their 2018 World Cup qualifiers against Cameroon.

There are two familiar names in the Nigeria squad, our former midfielder, John Obi Mikel, will captain the side, whilst our wing-back Victor Moses is back in the squad after missing the last international through injury.

But, more significantly, there is a third Chelsea connection.

Although Ola Aina has played for England at youth level from the U16 age group right through to the U20 level, the defender has switched his allegiance to Nigeria.

Aina is currently on loan at the Championship side Hull City where he`s getting valuable first-team experience.

But what are your thoughts on players switching allegiance at international level when they`ve already played for one country?

Please feel free to leave your opinions in our comments facility beneath this article.

If you have your choice between 2 teams that will never win a world cup, go with the one that makes your family proud. LOL
