    Congratulations, Oparanozie. You deserve it.

    You are breaking the record, Desire.

    “Super Falcons striker Desire Oparanozie has a bus stop in Guingamp, France, named after.”

    You are indeed a legend. I hope NFF will recognize that. God bless you more, Oparanozie. You will be missed in the Super Falcons, that is for sure.

    I hope coach Waldrum will scout for more quality strikers. We have the in Nigeria and abroad. We can’t rely on Onumonu alone. We also have Ini Abass and Ariyo. These are quality strikers kę.

    Onome should not be called back in that team also. She should know when to quit. Ordega should not come back, too.

    We want young players and new faces from now on to join the squad. Ire o. God bless Nigeria!!!

    Federal and state governments must start putting retired sportsmen in-charge of sports instead of conferring honorary appointments on them.
