Desire Oparanozie has slammed the Nigeria Football Federation following her exclusion from the Super Falcons squad that will feature at the Turkish Women’s Cup, which begins on Monday.
On Thursday the NFF released a 23-man list for the tournament, with Oparanozie a shock exclusion.
However, the trio of Onome Ebi, Chinwendu Ihezuo and Francesca Ortega who are all clueless, were invited for the tournament.
Commenting on Oparanozie’s exclusion NFF’s Director of Communications, Ademola Olajire, in a recent interview with BBC, said it had nothing to do with the role she played in the protest in at the 2019 World Cup in France.
“Oparanozie is still part of the team’s plans, and her non-inclusion has nothing to do with that protest in France because she was not the only one involved.
“Selection of players is predominantly the prerogative of the coaches and not the NFF.
“She remains an important member of the women’s national side. I think she will just have to keep working on her game and, if she gets the opportunity, then push for consistent selection.”
But reacting to what Olajide said, Oparanozie wrote on her Twitter handle: “Work on my game and push for consistent selection. Those ones who’s been without a club for over a year now, how many of their games did they work on over the past one year to merit their inclusion? When we’re spoilt for choice. Look for another lie.”
