Ola Aina is hopeful of making the 2022 FIFA World Cup after he was dropped from the team to the 2018 FIFA World Cup.
Aina who was included in Gernot Rohr’s initial 30-man provisional list for the World Cup played in the Super Eagles 1-1 draw with DR Congo in Port-Harcourt.
Brought in as a substitute, Aina was responsible for the penalty awarded to DR Congo which led to their equalizer.
He was not given any game time in the 2-1 loss to England and was not included in the final 23-man list for the 2018 FIFA World Cup.
Rohr preferred experienced Elderson Echiejile and Brian Idowu to fill the left back position while he opted for Abdullahi Shehu and Tyronne Ebuehi in the right back position.
The 21-year-old, however, showed no bitterness as he took to his official Twitter handle to wish the team well in Russia.
He said, ”Maybe next time.. I want to wish the boys all the very best out in Russia make our Nation proud #soarsupereagles #MrLulu ”.
