Samuel Owolabi Makes Rio Olympics list

by on May 1, 2016

Nigeria U-23 coach, Samson Siasia, has added Nyokobing of Denmark forward, Olajide Samuel Owolabi to the list of overseas-based players expected to try out with the team ahead of the Rio 2016 Olympic Games.

Siasia has submitted a provisional list of 60 players to the Nigeria Football Federation, but he is still adding new discoveries to the list, as he aims to find the perfect squad to the Games.

Owolabi, 21, previously trained with the team ahead of the 2015 All Africa Games and the U-23 AFCON, but failed to make any of the tournaments as his club failed to release him.

He also trained with Manu Garba’s U-20 side before the 2015 FIFA U20 World Cup in New Zealand, but suffered an injury which knocked him out of the race for a place in the final squad.
