Oparanozie left out of Nigeria 23-player Turkish Women's Cup squad

Desire Oparanozie has been omitted from Nigeria women's senior national team 25-woman Turkish Women's Cup squad.

The Nigeria Football Federation released their list on Thursday and there was no room for the Dijon star, who appears to have fallen out of favour with the authorities. Whereas, Charity Adule was included in the squad.

There was room in the squad for Chinwendu Ihezuo, who recently parted ways with Chinese side Henan Huishang, alongside Onome Ebi.
