Super Eagles defender Ola Aina has been included in the Italian Serie A Team of the Week following his impressive performance for Torino in their 1-0 win against Udinese in an encounter played on Sunday, February 10.


               
           
               
                   

The 22-year-old scored the only goal of the game in the 31st minute through an assist by Cristian Ansaldi to give Torino all three points against Udinese.


               
           
               
                   
                 
               

               
           
               
                   

For his match-winning performance against Udinese, Aina was rewarded with a place on the Team of the Week.


               
           
               
                   

Aina who was deployed at wingback in the encounter was included in a midfield role alongside AC Milan duo Lucas Paquetá, Franck Kessié and AS Roma’s Stephan El Shaarawy.


               
           
               
                   

Aina was sensational in the matchday 23 encounter against compatriot William Troost-Ekong at the Stadio Olimpico Grande Torino.
