Imo FA Confers Honorary Member Title On Oparanozie

Imo State Football Association (FA) over the weekend conferred the title of “Honorary Member” on former Super Falcons striker Desire Oparanozie.

The 29-year-old shared the news on Monday via her social media account on X, formerly known as Twitter, expressing her gratitude for the recognition.

"Over the weekend I was conferred as an Honorary member of the Imo State Football Association," Oparanozie wrote. 

"Special appreciation to the Imo State FA Chairman and it's executive committee members for such an honour. 

"A recognition I do no take for granted. Long live Imo State."

The recognition comes after Oparanozie announced her retirement from professional football last week.

Her last international duty was with the Super Falcons in the round of 16 of the 2023 FIFA Women’s World Cup in Australia and New Zealand, where Nigeria crashed out after losing 4-2 on penalties to England.

She however enjoyed an illustrious career, winning the Women’s Africa Cup of Nations (WAFCON) with Nigeria in 2010, 2014, 2016 and 2018.
