There is no good news from Torino regarding the availability of Ola Aina for the upcoming international fixtures against Seychelles and Egypt. The wing-back was withdrawn from the Torino squad against Chievo Verona on Sunday after suffering an injury during the pre-match warm-up.
The Maroons reported on the official website on Tuesday that Aina did not take part in today’s training session because of a problem of the abdominal rectum and he is being evaluated by team doctors. The defender’s expected return date is not known at this time but he’s doubtful for Sunday’s trip to Frosinone.
Nigeria manager Gernot Rohr named three fullbacks in the shape of Aina, Abdullahi Shehu and Jamilu Collins in the latest squad list announced on Monday and it remains to be seen if a replacement will be called up in the event the Chelsea loanee does not recover from his ailment in the coming days. There are also concerns over the fitness of central defender Leon Balogun who is recovering from a shoulder injury.
