Olowu was on the radar of top Nigeria Football Federation staff in the months leading up to the 2019 FIFA U20 World Cup but regrettably suffered a serious injury that ended his season and put paid to his dreams of playing for the Flying Eagles in Poland.

In the coming days, the defender is expected to travel to Poland to watch one of the games involving the Flying Eagles.
