Ola Aina Breaks Silence On Nigeria’s Elimination From AFCON


Super Eagles defender, Ola Aina, has finally broken his silence on Nigeria’s elimination from the ongoing 2021 Africa Cup of Nations, AFCON, in Cameroon.

Nigeria was eliminated from the 2021 AFCON Round of 16 after losing 1-0 to Tunisia last Sunday.

Youssef Msakni’s second-half goal ensured Tunisia defeated the Super Eagles and qualified for the AFCON quarter-finals.

Reacting, Aina urged Nigerians to put the Tunisia defeat behind them, adding that the Super Eagles should focus on the next edition of the AFCON in Ivory Coast.

“We have put the defeat against Tunisia behind us even though It was very painful,” Aina told the media on the eve of the Super Eagles’ departure from Cameroon.

“The next edition in Ivory Coast is not far away and I think that should be our focus for now. We can’t dwell too much on the past.

“We are disappointed, the fans are disappointed, but things will be fine in future.”
