The impressive forms of both players have been rewarded with call-ups to the Super Eagles squad for a friendly game against Corsica and a camping in France all in May.

Camp for the friendly game against Corsica will open on Wednesday, May 24 with the match to be played two days later ahead of their 2019 Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON) qualifiers against South Africa on Saturday, June 10.

Odey and Olatunbosun’s call-ups came following calls from several quarters for Super Eagles boss Gernot Rohr to include them in his squad.


Rohr received a slew of criticisms for not including the NPFL stars in his squad for a friendly game against Senegal in March.

It is not known if Odey and Olatunbosun will be included in the final list for their 2019 AFCON qualifiers against South Africa on Saturday, June 10.
