AFCON: Ola Aina belongs to CAF’s XI – Peseiro


Nigeria coach Jose Peseiro has said that Ola Aina belongs to CAF’s first eleven at the 2023 Africa Cup of Nations, AFCON.

Peseiro spoke at the mandatory pre-match press conference ahead of the Super Eagles semifinal match with South Africa in the ongoing 2023 Africa Cup of Nations, AFCON.

The Portuguese was accompanied to the press briefing by Nottingham Forest star Ola Aina.

The semifinal clash comes up at the Stade de la Paix, Bouaké on Wednesday evening.

Aina attended the press conference in place of Kelechi Iheanacho, who was initially assigned to do so and when asked to explain the absence of the former Manchester City star at the press briefing, Peseiro answered, “Even Aina, at this moment I don’t know.

“I don’t like to speak about individual players but he’s doing very, very well. For me he belongs to the first eleven in this competition.”
