18 year old Ofoborh penned a two and a half year deal with the Premier League outfit in December, a year after joining them from Millwall, the team he joined after leaving Tottenham Hotspur.
He travelled with the first team of Bournemouth for their Premier League clash against Swansea City. A sign of how much he has impressed coach Eddie Howe with his performances for the Under-18s and 21s.
Ofoborh becomes the first foreign based player to be called up coach Paul Aigbogun who is presently with the team in Egypt, where they are going to play two friendly games against their Egyptian counterparts.
Already, their first game ended in a 0-0 draw earlier today, with the second game billed for Wednesday before Ofoborh will join up with the squad upon their return from Egypt on Friday.
