Oparanozie Proud Of Super Falcons Performance Despite Friendly Defeat To Canada

Super Falcons forward Desire Oparanozie (pictured above,shirt 24, in goal celebratio) insists the side can take a lot of positives from Monday’s friendly encounter against Canada despite the 2-1 defeat to the North Americans, Completesports.com reports

Oparanozie opened scoring for the African champions with a sublime finish in the 27th minute after she was set up by the impressive Uchenna Kanu .

Canada, who are ranked fifth in the world rallied back after the break with goals from Beckie Janine and substitue Sophie Schmidt.

“Wasn’t the result we hoped for, but we keep working hard. Lots of positives to take away from this game. We work on 2 – 1 defeat against Canada,” Oparanozie tweeted.

The Super Falcons last Friday defeated Icelandic Women’s topflight side UMF Selfoss 6-1 in their previous friendly encounter.

Thomas Dennerby’s ladies will now focus their attention on the WAFU Women’s tournament In Cote d’Ivoire as they continue their build up ahead of 2019 FIFA Women’s World Cup in France.

They will face hosts France, Norway and Korea Republic in Group A at the 2019 FIFA Women’s World Cup this summer.

    You shouldn’t be proud of failure no matter what kind of team the gals played. Pls,do not instill a mediocritic mindset in the gals. There is no excuse for failure,they are human beings just as they are and so can be beaten.

      Bro, they haven’t failed yet. It is better to fail the test then pass the exam.

       
  • it’s not good to fail,but most time failure is a learning curve.

    Our girls were playing the 5th ranked team in the World and lost narrowly. That is no shame. There are lessons to learn and experience can only be the best teacher. If we had won the typical Nigerian swagger would have led to overconfidence at the World Cup

    The way some people expect a baby to run before crawling amazes me. Our SF who are still work in process gave a canadian team, that is in its consolidation stage ahead of the world cup, a run for their money, scored against a team that hasn’t conceded a goal in 6 grade A matches this year, almost eked out a draw from a team that hasnt lost a game in 2019…and in the eyes of pessimists…that is a failure…what else can I say…???
