Falcons drop one spot in FIFA ranking despite winning AWCON

Super Falcons forward Desire Oparanozie has vowed to avenged 8-0 defeat to France in an international friendly match on April 6, 2018.

The 24-year-old En Avant de Guingamp striker was part of Nigeria team that suffered the second heavy loss of African women Champions eight months ago at the MMArena.

Super Falcons will face France again in a competitive fixture in their second meeting in the 2019 FIFA World Cup, and Oparanozie aims to prove doubters wrong by insisting that the massacre in April was a “Fluke”.

In a 2 minute-long video former Bayelsa Queens and Delta Queens described the loss to France as “disgraceful”, but also vows the team was determined to “redeem” come June 17.

Nigeria was drawn in group A alongside France, Norway and Korea Republic.
