Oparanozie on target as Ashleigh Plumtre debuts for Nigeria against Olimpija Ljubljana

Desire Oparanozie scored the winner as the Super Falcons of Nigeria defeated Slovenian giants Olimpija Ljubljana in a friendly on Friday.

The match was played at Vosendorf Stadium and the Randy Waldrum ladies did well to wrap up their stay in Austria with an excellent performance.


Oparanozie who was making a return to the team since 2019 netted the only goal of the game in the 16th minute.

The Dijon striker curled in a perfect free kick from the edge of the box to mark her return in style.

Also, English Born defender Ashleigh Plumtre was handed her debut for the Super Falcons in the 1-0 win.

The Leicester City defender was given the nod by coach Randy to start the game and she gave very good account of herself, according to reports.

The African champions will now turn their attention to the upcoming Aisha Buhari Invitational Women’s Football Tourney scheduled for September.

The players and officials are now expected leave the Austrian camp to their various clubs on Saturday, July 24.
