Super Falcons player, Desire Oparanozie, has set a target to exceed the team’s existing World Cup records.
In an interview with PREMIUM TIMES on her arrival to camp on Sunday evening, the 21-year-old forward said she
was looking at a situation where the current squad will break their current best feat at the World Cup and set a new one.
“Looking at the World Cup in Canada, I want to be a part of the team, the team that will break the previous records set by the veterans. So if we can exceed that and get beyond what they’ve done I will be fulfilled and happy,” the player said.
Speaking about her plans ahead of the All African Games qualifier which will be played against Mali on Friday, she said the team always go for wins in all their matches.
“The plan has always been the way forward, how to succeed and come out of every game with head held high just like any other game. We have a great plan of qualifying for the All African Games,” she said.
“Without the assistance of my other teammates there is barely nothing I could do exactly. So me as an individual, I believe in the team and they also believe in me, we will work together as a team and achieve whatsoever we have set out to achieve,” she explained.
Oparanozie, who is also playing in France with Guingamp, praised her performance at the club level.
“So far it has been so good for me at the club side, so very commendable. I really have been doing well at the club level so it’s been really good for me, I am happy,” she said.
The Super Falcons are currently camped in Abuja to prepare for the All African Games 2015, 2016 Olympics qualifiers and their appearance at the FIFA world cup which has been scheduled to take place in Canada in June 2015.
