Nigeria U-23 invitee Nathan Oduwa has confirmed he will be in Brazil on the 24th of March when Nigeria Olympic team square up against their Brazilian counterparts.

He took to his account on social media app twitter to confirm his arrival date as Sunday 20th of March four days before the friendly in Rio.

Oduwa who plays for Tottenham Hotspurs is in his second loan of the season after canceling his loan spell with Scottish side Rangers just six months in to the season long loan to join Colchester United in the third tier of English football.

20 year old Oduwa has made just two appearances for Colchester since joining them on the 26th of February and even though they have a match on same day as the Nigeria U-23s friendly he insist on going to Brazil for the game.

His availability for the Nigeria game means he has decided to pledge his allegiance to Nigeria even though he also qualifies to represent England.
