Super Eagles defender Ola Aina scored his first Premier League goal for Fulham as they finally won their first Premier League game this season, beating West Brom 2-0.

Aina blasted his shot past Sam Johnstone from the edge of the area four minutes after Decordova-Reid had put the cottagers ahead in the 26th minute.

Fulham deservedly ended a run of six games without a win — a dismal stretch including five defeats — since their promotion from the Championship last term.

His Nigerian teammate, Seyi Ajayi played the entire 90mins for West Brom as he made one important clearance in the match.

Aina is part of Gernot Rohr’s Super Eagles to face Sierra Leone in this month’s double-header Africa Cup of Nations qualifiers in Benin City and Freetown.

There are very few things in life that make me happy, but talking and writing Sports has to be at the top. I honed my broadcasting skills at the University of Lagos Radio Station and have free-lanced for platforms like Top Radio and Superscreen TV amongst others. Deji loves running commentaries on Football matches and Athletics, and is now a Junior Sports Writer at Making of Champions. He hopes to become a Sports Agent in the future.
