Energetic Super Falcons striker Desire Oparanozie won her first trophy in China after her club Wuhan Jianghan defeated Beijing Women in the final of the Chinese FA Cup.
Oparanozie who was dropped from the Super Falcons squad for the 2022 Women’s Africa Cup of Nation (WAFCON) in Morocco has had a blissful career on the international scene. The 28-year-old left French side Dijon FC for Wuhan Jianghan, and it has been a successful stay.

Oparanozie’s side sits comfortably on top of the Women’s Super League. And they added a trophy to their cabinet on Sunday, as they thrashed Beijing Women 3-0 to claim the FA Cup.
Goals from Zhu Hongguo and Temwa Chawinga were enough to crown Wuhan Jianghan champions of China. Oparanozie saw only seven minutes of action in the game as she was introduced in the 83rd minute.
Oparanozie won the Women’s Africa Cup of Nations Golden boot in 2014. She was key in the Super Falcons’ success in 2010, 2014, 2016, and 2018.
Oparanozie would look to find her place back in the Super Falcons ahead of the 2023 Women’s World Cup.
