AFCON 2019: I’m not happy with bronze – Ola Aina reacts to Nigeria’s third-place finish

Super Eagles defender, Ola Aina has admitted he want more, but is satisfied with finishing third at the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations.

While speaking with SportingLife, he however called for the current squad to be kept together.

Aina was one of the shining stars in Gernot Rohr’s team at the tournament, filling in at the two fullback roles admirably.

“We had a good run in the tournament. Yeah, if we continue working hard together and with this kind of players coming to the team. I think it is very promising.

“They were a good side. They worked hard and we work hard. We really wanted to go home with a medal or something. I think that was the difference against Tunisia.

“How I am personally, I am not happy with the bronze because I expected more, we all expected more but it is good that we didn’t go home empty-handed,” Aina said.
