Nigeria Coach Names One Striker He'll Certainly Include In 2019 World Cup SquadPublished: December 09, 2018
Super Falcons coach Thomas Dennerby has revealed that he will certainly include Guingamp frontwoman Desire Oparanozie on the roster for the 2019 Women's World Cup.
The center forward was not involved in the Africa Women Cup of Nations showpiece against South Africa due to a thigh injury she sustained in the semifinal against Cameroon.
''She is a good player, who has a sense of purpose but also good technical skills,'' said Dennerby to footofeminin.fr.
''She has experience, although she had some problems at the AWCON, where she suffered a thigh injury, which made her miss the final.
''But if she is fit, ready to play, she will be part of the group this summer.''
Speaking on the World Cup draw that will see Nigeria face France in their final Group A match, the Swedish tactician explained why they were humiliated 8-0 in their last outing on European soil, adding that it will be a different story next June.
''I hope so! This time (in April 2018), this was the first time my group had met for 17 months. In addition, we arrived only 1 day and a half before the match because of the strikes that were in France, we arrived very late, with many complications. But I can promise you one thing, we'll be better prepared this time,'' he concluded.
