Oparanozie returns with a bang as Falcons beat Olimpia

Veteran forward Desire Oparanozie scored the only goal as the Super Falcons defeated Slovenian club Olimpija Ljubljana 1-0 in a friendly match at the Vosendorf Stadium on Friday.

Oparanozie netted the winning goal from a free-kick in the 16th minute as the Falcons continue their impressive summer buildup.

The power-playing Dijon striker was making her first appearance for the Super Falcons in two years, with the trio of Ebere Orji, Ngozi Okobi and Chiamaka Nnadozie also making a return for the first time since missing out of action since October 2019.

Leicester City defender Asheigh Plumptre made her maiden appearance for the nine-time African champions along with American- born goalkeeper Yewande Balogun.

Friday’s match in Vienna was a wrap up test match for the West African nation following an eight-day training camp ahead of their upcoming international engagements, beginning with the Aisha Buhari Cup in September.
