Initially reported by Ojora Babatunde [ojbsport], that the NFF had extended an invitation to the Spurs U23 goalkeeper, FL can confirm the decision was made after the compilation of the 22-man squad for the friendly.
Oluwayemi’s invitation became necessary after veteran Ikechukwu Ezenwa picked up an injury that ruled him out of the July 4 fixture.

The “home” Super Eagles squad left the Country on Wednesday heading to the US where they’ll face CONCACAF Gold Cup-bound Mexico at the LA Memorial Coliseum.
