    Super Eagles star, Ola Aina says he will not shy away  from taking another penalty kick for Nigeria if he is given another chance.

    The hard working wing-back missed his penalty kick in  Nigeria’s AFCON semi-final encounter with  South Africa. The Nigerian team eventually triumphed over their South African opponents on penalties with a 4-2 scoreline.

    But  while speaking with Oluwashina Okedeji of Planet Sports Football Africa, Aina said: “Football is a roller coaster. I could put my money on it, I could put my house on it, I could put everything on it that I would’ve scored my penalty .

    “Normally I back myself because I am very good at them. Someone had to miss unfortunately and it was me.

    “The boys and Nwabali saved me and saved all of us and I am just grateful for that. You look forward and if it comes to it again, I will be taking another one, but that is just me.”

    The Super Eagles will play against the Elephants of Cote D’Ivoire in the final of the tournament at 9pm on Sunday.
