Former Super Eagles striker, Victor Ikpeba has questioned the role of the technical director of the Nigeria Football Federation, Austine Eguavoen in the surprise exclusion of Super Falcons forward, Desire Oparanozie from the list of players that will represent Nigeria at the Turkey Women’s Cup.
Ikpeba made this known during Monday Night Football on SuperSports, where he condemned the decision of NFF to drop a player that has been consistent with Saint Etienne in France.
“Eguavoen is the technical director of the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) and what role did he play in a situation like this.
“There should be no sentiment about inviting Oparanozie for the tournament in Turkey. She remains the most consistent player on the team in terms of playing regular football.
“I see nothing wrong if Oparanozie decided to voice out her mind on the situation of the players during the 2019 FIFA Women’s World Cup.”
