Highly-rated Arsenal defender, Joseph Olowu, has ended rumors about the country he will represent internationally, as he chooses to play for Nigeria.
Olowu was born in Ibadan, before moving to England. He is a product of the Gunners Hale End Academy.
It was revealed for the first time that the nineteen-year-old was on the radar of top Nigeria Football Federation staff in the months leading up to the 2019 FIFA U20 World Cup. Unfortunately, he suffered a serious injury that ended his season and put a halt to his dreams of playing for the Flying Eagles in Poland.
Olowu is expected to travel to Poland to watch one of the matches involving the Flying Eagles.
Also, the central defender will introduce himself to the Nigeria Football Federation officials, coaching staff and players when he arrives in Katowice.
Olowu penned a professional deal in December 2017. However, leaving Arsenal during the summer cannot be entirely ruled out, as he is seeking first-team football.
The Nigerian, who joined Arsenal at U14 level, has trained with the first team in times past.
