Asisat Oshoala is New Super Falcons Captain

Barcelona striker Asisat Oshoala has been named the new captain of the Super Falcons, replacing Desire Oparanozie, who led the team at the 2019 Women’s World Cup in June to reach the knockout stage for the first time in two decades.

The change was announced by acting coach of the Falcons, Christopher Danjuma, on Tuesday.

In a video posted on the Falcons official Twitter page, which was also re-tweeted by the Nigeria Football Federation handle, Danjuma urged the Falcons to cooperate with their new captain.

While addressing the players, Danjuma said, “We need you to be focused. You are in this squad because of your ability. The leadership of the Falcons has decided to change your leaders. Oshoala is now your captain. As for the assistant captain, that will be dealt with later.”

 Also, the spokesperson of the NFF, Ademola Olajire, confirmed Oshoala’s appointment.

When asked about the appointment, he said, “Yes, she is now the new captain.”
