After what was deemed an overdue invitation for one of the League's safest pair of hands, Ojo Olorunleke has posited that his invitation to the Super Eagles of Nigeria came at the time it was appointed to come after a consistent run of form in the NPFL for seasons.
Ojo, Enyimba's goalkeeper was part of a 30-man list of players invited for the Nigeria's Senior Mens' Team international friendly games against Mexico and Ecuador on May 28th and June 2nd 2022 respectively.
The goal tender stated thus, "this was the appointed time for me. When I saw the list, I had tears trickling down my cheeks, the joy was one of relief. All I need to do now is to show my abilities and justify my invitation"
"I will not be there to make up the numbers, I'm going to compete and prove my mettle"
Already, Ojo Olorunleke is feeling the paparazzi that comes with being a Super Eagles invitee, as the former Akwa United goalkeeper had over 200 messages to attend to, immediately after the list was released.
"I was out for training and by the time I returned, I met over 200 messages, about 68 missed calls, it left me wowed".
Ojo has shown consistency as one of the best in the country, showing class with Giwa fc, Sunshine Stars, Akwa United, Abia warriors and now Enyimba.
