Oluwayemi Fopcus on More Call-Ups

New Nigeria international and goalkeeper Joshua Oluwayemi says he wants to be a regular face in the Super Eagles squad.
“It was a long trip but I’m happy to be here and I’m looking forward to the game against Mexico,” he said on the Super Eagles Instagram handle.
“Back in London, it was a proud moment for my family seeing me represent my nation with such a strong Nigerian background I have in London.
Oluwayemi, who was born in England to parents of Nigerian descent, was a late call-up to the Super Eagles squad for the clash against Mexico following an injury to Ikechukwu Ezenwa.
“My whole community around me was so proud. First, [my immediate target] is to make sure I am at my best against Mexico and give my best performance,” he added.
“[The] long term goal is to make sure that I keep coming back and cement my place in this team.”
Nigeria’s next matches are against Liberia and Cape Verde in the 2022 FIFA World Cup qualifiers in September 2021.
