Super Falcons’ striker, Desire Oparanozie has hailed the Amaju Pinnick led Nigeria Football federation (NFF) for the good preparation the team has had so far ahead of the FIFA Women’s World Cup in France.
Oparanozie stated that she remained satisfied with the level of preparations so far and expressed gratitude to the NFF for the efforts made at ensuring the team is adequately prepared for the world cup.
“I’m satisfied with the world cup preparation because this is the first of its kind for the Falcons. We also understand that the federation are hoping to get us quality friendlies in the first week of April during the FIFA window.
The plan is to play 2 or 3 friendlies and we hear what we may be waiting for now is a formal approval.”
In the same vein, Super Falcons shot stopper Tochukwu Oluehi has admitted that the team have been exposed but good enough that all these they have seen were in preparations ahead of the FIFA women’s world cup in France this summer.
Oluehi speaking aftermath of Nigeria’s second defeat at the Cyprus cup where the team lost 1-0 to Belgium yesterday said the experience will benefit the team later because the purpose of playing friendly matches is to really open up areas to work on which she is sure will be well addressed before the main tournament.
