Despite the unexpected call-up, Olawoyin is thrilled with the opportunity and vows to deliver if given the chance to play.

“It’s an incredible honor,” Olawoyin told TVC News. “I wasn’t expecting it, but I’m overjoyed. I’ve been waiting for this chance to showcase my abilities.”

“Representing the entire nation is a privilege, and I’ll definitely give my all if selected,” he added.
