Aina’s wonder strike secures victory for Fulham against West Brom

Nigeria international, Ola Aina ended his goal drought after five years in the English premier league with a well-taken drive to secure Fulham’s first victory in Monday’s premier league fixture against West Brom.

Fulham ended the match 2-0 at the Craven Cottage with Bobby De Cordova-Reid giving Scott Parker’s side the lead in the 26th minute after Aleksandar Mitrovic nodded Antonee Robinson’s cross back across goal.

Four minutes later, right-back Aina who was making his fifth appearance for Fulham lashed a phenomenal left-footed shot into the top corner, with Mitrovic again creating the chance.

It was Fulham’s first victory of the season which now sends them to the 17th position, four points ahead of West Brom who dropped to 18th.

Aina’s Super Eagles teammate Semi Ajayi was in action for West Brom who are still searching for the first win.
