By James Agberebi: Championship club Hull City and Super Eagles defender Leon Balogun have congratulated Ola Aina after he scored his first ever senior goal in a 1-0 away win against League One side Blackburn Rovers in the third round of the Emirates FA Cup on Saturday.
Aina, who is on loan to Hull from Premier League champions Chelsea, opened his goals account for the Championship side when he scored on 58 minutes to send them into round four of the FA Cup.
It was a much needed win for Hull who have gone five straight games without a win.
Reacting to Aina’s first goal for the club, Hull wrote on their verified Twitter handle: “We think Ola rather enjoyed that! Congratulations on your first goal for the Tigers.”
Fellow Nigeria international Balogun wrote: “That’s my room mate, well done bro and congrats.”
