"I have come to fight for a jersey in this friendly
match that is part of preparations for the Rio Olympics and I am happy to be
among the invited players. You know I was part of the Golden Eaglets team that
defeated the Brazilians at the last U-17 World Cup in Chile and so it will be a
pleasure for me to play them at their backyard and hopefully find the back of
the net, as I did against them in Chile."
With his arrival, Osimhen became the first foreign -based
player to arrive camp in preparation for the game.For
