Chelsea defender, Ola Aina, who is on loan at Hull City, has finally been cleared by FIFA to play for Nigeria.

Aina, who has featured for England at age-level competitions, was ineligible to play against Cameroon in Uyo, as the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) did not receive his international clearance on time.
