Meet Luton Town's Gabriel Osho: The Golden Eaglets reject now in the spotlight of Super Eagles

Luton Town defender Gabriel Osho has been rewarded for his impressive club form with a maiden call-up to the Nigerian national team, the Super Eagles.

The 25-year-old, born in England to Nigerian parents, finds himself included in the squad for the upcoming international friendlies against Ghana and Mali scheduled for March 22nd and 26th respectively in Morocco.

Osho's inclusion marks a significant moment in his career, offering him the chance to represent the country of his heritage on the international stage.

This call-up comes after a period of dedication and strong performances for Luton Town in the Premier League.

Osho has established himself as a dependable defender for the newly promoted club, playing a pivotal role in their historic rise to the top tier of English football.

However, Osho's journey to the Super Eagles wasn't entirely straightforward. Interestingly, he was previously part of the Nigerian U17 training camp in 2015.

The camp served as a preparatory stage for the FIFA U-17 World Cup held later that year. Despite his efforts, Osho ultimately fell short of making the final squad for the tournament.

This earlier experience with the national youth setup demonstrates Osho's long-standing desire to represent Nigeria.

Now, several years later, his unwavering commitment and consistent club displays have earned him a well-deserved chance to prove himself on the senior international stage.

The upcoming friendlies against Ghana and Mali provide Osho with a valuable platform to showcase his talent and stake his claim for a place in the Super Eagles squad for future competitions.

This call-up signifies a dream come true for the defender who, despite the U17 setback, seemingly never gave up on his aspirations of playing for the three-time African champions.

Nigerian fans will be eager to see how Osho adapts to the international scene and whether he can translate his club form into success for the national team.

With his determination and talent, Gabriel Osho has the potential to become a valuable asset for the Super Eagles in the years to come.
