Gent striker Peter Olayinka has welcomed his invitation by Nigeria U23s, saying he is delighted now that he passed on a chance to play international football with Albania.

Olayinka is one of 21 foreign pros called up by Nigeria’s Olympic team for a friendly against Rio Olympics hosts Brazil next month.

And the 20-year-old lanky striker said his patience to wait for his chance with Nigeria has begun to reap dividends.

"I feel so excited to get a call up to play for Nigeria U23 national team,” he celebrated.

"I know I will get chance with Nigeria and I am happy I didn't regret my decision not to play for Albania national team when I had the chance."

Olayinka added: “I will put in my best to show that I am equal to the task. I will do my best to show that I justify the invitation. I will give 100%."
