Chelsea Academy product Ola Aina produced his best performance in a Super Eagles jersey in a 1-0 win against Burundi in their Africa Cup of Nations opener on Saturday evening.
Aina had a hand in the game-winning goal as Odion Ighalo converted a skillful backheeled pass from the fullback with 13 minutes remaining.
Rohr praised the versatility of the former England U19 skipper who is capable of playing as a left back, right back, left wing-back and right wing-back.
''Ola Aina has improved really well. That’s why we tell our players to go to teams where they will play and get better,'' Rohr told reporters at the post-match press conference.
''He is a different player entirely, his presence gives us another option when we play with three at the back as he can play as a wing-back.''
London-born Aina became cap-tied to Nigeria when he made his competitive debut in a World Cup qualifier against Zambia in October 2017.
