Super Falcons forward Desire Oparanozie has revealed the Nigerian women’s team ambition ahead of the 2018 AWCON tournament taking place in Ghana.
Oparanozie believes the Super Falcons currently enjoy a cordial team spirit that makes life easier for the group both on and off the pitch, and that it could help their course in the tournament.
“We live as a unit. There is that bond between us and we are all thinking less about ourselves and thinking more about our common goal which is the 11th title, says the France-based striker.
“In our group (Group A), people tend to see Nigeria as top favourites. I personally don’t think so. You have to prove it on the pitch and not on paper and not ahead of the tournament.
Ghana, who are WAFU champions, are an apparent threat to all being the host team but the 24-year-old striker is unfazed.
