Super Eagles centre-back, Ola Aina, made his Cameroonian girlfriend, Belky Wara, super proud after scoring his second Premier League goal for Fulham in their 1-1 draw against Burnley at Turf Moor.
The Nigerian defender benefited from a goal-mouth scramble to chest home from close range and give the Cottagers the lead just four minutes after the resumption.
Though Ashley Barnes' 52nd minute cancelled out Aina's goal as they both shared the spoils at the end of the meeting.
However, that did not matter to Wara who celebrated her boyfriend's goal with all enthusiasm while she jumped and scream in the process.
The goal was also significant for the Cameroonian who was earlier celebrated on social media by the 2019 AFCON bronze winner. While expressing her excitement, she said:
"He is so happy he did it."
To be honest, words alone could not quantify how excited Belky was as the goal could have been the best gift she got from her boyfriend as she turned a year older.
Aina's first EPL goal came earlier in the season when Fulham beat West Bromwich Albion and he has also contributed another goal which means he has two goals and one assist so far this term.
Legit.ng earlier reported that Nigerian international Ola Aina has taken to his Instagram story to celebrate his Cameroonian girlfriend Belky Wara who was celebrating her birthday.
The Super Eagles defender posted a picture of Belky to rejoice with the celebrant where he also added the melodious ‘Ratchet Happy Birthday’ song by Drake.
Although it is not yet clear the extent of their relationship, it was gathered that Aina and Belky have been 'besties' for some years now.
