Photos: Super Falcons player Desire Oparanozie alleges she was battered with football boot during AWCON qualifiers


Super Falcons Player Ugochi Desire Oparanozie who plays for EN Avent de Guingamp in France has alleged that she was battered with the studs of a football boot during the Africa Women Championship qualifying match against the Terenga Lioness of Senegal that took place in Senegal last night. Nigeria’s Super Falcons played a 1-1 draw against Senegal in the first leg. From the pictures it’s clear the injuries were very deep and it’s surprising how a player who inflicted such an injury on another player wasn’t given a red card.

See what she wrote after the cut.

”I feel pity for @CAF_online and African football in general. It’s such a shame that referees are being used to manipulate games. Who would’ve believed there’s no caution for this injury let alone a sent off…..would you believe if i told you i was standing on my feet when this happened? Those were boot studs(soft) raised as high as my hight…..all the way to my forehead, leaving me with four(4) different cuts “and there’s no form of caution whatsoever”.
”Or am i to complain of the substance(juju) sprinkling on the pitch while game was on which the Moroccan ref LAMYAA LOURARHI did nothing about even after series of complaints. In this new age? African football is indeed in deep shambles. It’s just so unfortunate i happen to be the escape goat this time, it’s well. Thanks to you all for your support, and to as many that’s called and sent in messages….i sincerely appreciate. Nothing is gonna stop us from qualifying, and when i say nothing….i mean NOTHING! #VivaSuperFalconsOfNigeria #GodPassThem”
