Aina handles debut pressure well – Rohr

Super Eagles Manager, Gernot Rohr, has heaped praises on Hull City Chelsea loanee, Ola Aina, for handling the pressure associated with debut making well against Zambia.

The youngster made his debut for Nigeria after replacing Uwa Echiejile, in the second half of the 1-0 victory against the Chipolopolo of Zambia at the weekend.

Rohr who had promised to ease the player  gently into the team was forced to introduce him after Echiejile cooped an injury in the game.

“He was calm after coming in which helped him to settle down into the game,” Rohr said.

“I dont have the intention of using him in this game because I knew there would be a lot of pressure and just joining the team, I believe such could be too much for him.

“But he surprised everyone with his performance within the short time he was on the field and nearly had an assist which was a good one for him.

“That has given him more confidence to blend with the team and we will be looking at him in our last match against Algeria and possibly in a friendly match same period.”
