Fifteen year old Winchester College pupil, Joseph Oluwabusola, has recently been selected for the Nigeria National U17 squad by the Nigeria Football Federation. Already a popular member of the Independent Schools Football Association U16 national squad and AFC Bournemouth, Joseph’s selection for the Nigerian national team has been celebrated by the entire school community.
Jason Dodd, Head of Football at Winchester College and former Southampton Football Club player commented: “Joseph has a fantastic attitude and has pushed himself in every aspect of his training and will not leave anything on the pitch. He has improved considerably over the last few years and it has been down to self-discipline and exceptionally hard work.”
Dr Tim Hands, Headmaster at Winchester College added, "Since joining the school, Joseph has always demonstrated excellent sporting ability. With the support of our dedicated team of sports coaches as well as his Housemaster, Mr Liam Taylor, we have seen him develop into a player of national ability. We look forward to cheering him on at the 2019 FIFA U17 World Cup in Peru.”
