When Nigeria’s Super Eagles confront Costa Rica and Portugal in an international friendly in November, it will surely be without one of its key defenders Ola Aina.
The report coming from his team Torino of Italy indicates that Aina has sustained a muscle injury and may likely be out until 2023.
The utility defender underwent the first test on Thursday to know the degree of the injury and is expected to undergo a second test to fully ascertain the level of the hamstring.
The former Fulham defender joined the Italian side from Chelsea in 2018 and has become a household name in the club.
He netted his opening goal of the season last weekend again Udinese as he helped the club to a 1-2 away win.
