“Look For Another Lie”: Oparanozie Replies NFF Over Super Falcons Squad Omission

Desire Oparanozie has replied to the claims that she needs to work on her game in order to get a call up to the Super Falcons squad. 

The France-based striker, 27, has been overlooked for Nigeria’s squad to the Turkish Cup with claims that it is because of her participation following a sit-in protest over unpaid bonuses and allowances at the 2019 World Cup in France.

Oparanozie said she was not surprised by her omission from new coach Randy Waldrum's maiden squad hinting that it was because of the protest.

“Work on my game and push for consistent selection". Those ones who's been without club for over a year now, how many of their games did they work on over the past one year to merit their inclusion? When we're spoilt for choice. Look for another lie, Oparanozie tweeted. 

Meanwhile, the squad announced by the NFF includes reigning African footballer of the year Asisat Oshoala, veteran defender Onome Ebi, former USA youth international Toni Payne and US-born Patricia George.

The continent's most successful national side with nine African titles will depart Nigeria on 15 February for the fifth edition of the Turkish Cup tournament.

Nigeria will face Uzbekistan in their opening game before facing fellow Africans Equatorial Guinea at the tournament, they had also been due to take on Zambia, who have now withdrawn from the event.
