Dennerby to name Oparanozie in Falcons’ World Cup squad

Super Falcons coach Thomas Dennerby says Desire Oparanozie one of the players he’s banking on to help the team qualify from from Group A of 2019 Women’s World Cup in France.

The Guigamp forward missed the final of the just concluded 11th Africa Women Cup of Nations showpiece against South Africa because of thigh injury she sustained in the semifinal against Cameroon.


However, Thomas Dennerby said the attacker is assured a place in his team to the World Cup if 100 percent fit .

”She is a good player, who has a sense of purpose but also good technical skills,” Dennerby told


”She has experience, although she had some problems at the AWCON, where she suffered a thigh injury, which made her miss the final.


”But if she is fit, ready to play, she will be part of the group this summer.”

While reacting to the World Cup draw which put Nigeria in Group A alongside host France, Korea and Norway,the former Sweden coachsaid the French will have their hands full when the Falcons comes visiting in June.

”I hope so! This time (in April 2018), this was the first time my group had met for 17 months.


In addition, we arrived only 1 day and a half before the match because of the strikes that were in France, we arrived very late, with many complications. But I can promise you one thing, we’ll be better prepared this time,” he concluded.
