Ola Aina is unruffled after he was left out of Nigeria’s final 23-man squad for the World Cup in Russia.

The youngster made the initial Super Eagles preliminary list but failed to nick a place in the final team to the global football showpiece along with five other players.

Notwithstanding the disappointment, the youngster took to social media to back the three-time African champions to make the county ‘proud’ in Russia.

“Maybe next time,” Aina tweeted.

“I want to wish the boys all the very best out in Russia make our Nation proud.”

Since he made his debut in November 2017 against Argentina, he has featured five times for the Super Eagles.
