Nigeria vs Ivory Coast: I’ll take another penalty – Super Eagles wing-back, Ola Aina

Super Eagles wing-back Ola Aina has said he would take another penalty for Nigeria if the opportunity comes again amid the ongoing 2023 Africa Cup of Nations.

Aina said this ahead of Nigeria’s AFCON final with Ivory Coast on Sunday.

Recall that the Nottingham Forest star missed his spot-kick during Nigeria’s AFCON semi-final win over South Africa.

The former Chelsea star has been an important player in Jose Peseiro’s side at the tournament.

Speaking with Oluwashina Olekeji of Planet Sports Football Africa, Aina said,

“Football is a roller coaster. I could put my money on it, I could put my house on it, I could put everything on it that I would’ve scored my penalty [against South Africa].

“Normally I back myself because I am very good at them. Someone had to miss unfortunately and it was me.

“The boys and Nwabali saved me and saved all of us and I am just grateful for that. You look forward and if it comes to it again [against Ivory Coast] I will be taking another one, but that is just me.”
