Supposedly this was set in motion in Spain days ago when Dennerby sought to make the move after consulting with his technical staff who all gave the move their go ahead.
Opranozie, as we know, is worth her weight in gold having led the Flamingoes to an Under 20 final where they lost to Germany in the end game and will be no stranger to setting new records for Nigeria.
We will stay on top of this development and update our pages as more news unfolds and wish the new captain all the best.
