Super Falcon’s skipper, Desire Oparanozie has stated that team gaffer, Thomas Dennerby might have spotted some good leadership qualities in her, hence his decision to name her captain of the team to the 2019 Women’s world cup in France.
The Guingamp WFC of France forward stated that the appointment came to her a huge surprise but she will do her best to bring the players together.
“Super falcons captaincy came as a surprise to me because there are so many players who are older than me who had been in the squad longer than I have been who deserved the position but I really don’t know why he picked me perhaps he saw some leadership quality, who knows?”
The African champions will depart from Abuja for Austria on Monday, 20th May for the Avita Resort in Bad Tatzmannsdorf – the same facility where the Super Eagles had their final camping programme just before the 2018 FIFA World Cup in Russia.
