"I was born in Boras, Sweden but I'm from Nigeria. My dad is Nigerian and my mom is Italian and Croatian, so I am eligible to represent Nigeria, Sweden, Italy and Croatia but I want to represent Nigeria, " Oluware said to

"I thank God I want to represent Nigeria because it's a country I love, it means a lot to me. Ever since I was a kid I have been supporting Nigeria and watching their games.

"I have been motivated and better in training because of my wish to represent Nigeria. Nigeria is in my blood, my brain and in my heart."

Oluware has lofty ambitions of becoming cap-tied to Nigeria by playing competitively for the Super Eagles in the coming years and one of his goals is to play for a big club outside Sweden.

"My dream is to come to Nigeria and play, not only for the youth teams, I want to play for the A Team.

"I want to play for the big clubs in the world and be promoted to Norrby IF's first team. Norrby is a great club that takes care of me and helped me to develop.

"My dream is not only to play football, I want to be a role model for the youths and to assist those who need help.

"In the next five years I hope by God's grace to play outside Sweden for great clubs," Oluware added.

Oluware has played for Norrby IF's U15 and U16 teams in the 2020 season.
