Ola Aina Strikes: Another Nigerian Dragging Fulham Out Of Troubled Waters

Ola Aina Strikes: Another Nigerian Dragging Fulham Out Of Troubled Waters 1

The Super Eagles defender got his second league goal of the campaign to give Scott Parker’s men the lead at Burnley

Days after compatriot Josh Maja netted a brace to secure an astonishing 2-0 win for Fulham at Everton, Nigerian international Ola Aina got the opening goal for the visitors at Burnley on Wednesday evening.

After a goalless first 45 minutes, Aina opened the scoring for Fulham from a corner four minutes into the second half and celebrated his second EPL strike despite knowing very little about the goal.

Andersen’s flick at the near post hit Aina in the chest, and it seemed to confuse everyone in the Burnley defence. The ball was allowed to bounce towards goal and Brady’s clearance went the wrong way and into the back of the net.

Aina cared little, though, as the on-loan Torino fullback became the second Nigerian star to contribute to Fulham’s survival in the space of a few days.

Unfortunately for Scott Parker’s men, Ashley Barnes equalized three minutes later for the home side to set up an intriguing final half-hour at the Turf Moor.
