Despite the Nigerian scoring first, her side crumbled at home to Adolphe Ogouyon’s women in the French women topflight encounter

Desire Oparanozie took her Division 1 Féminine goals tally to eight for the season when she scored for Guingamp in their 2-1 home defeat to ASPTT Albi on Sunday.

She got the curtain raiser after six minutes but the visitors clawed back to win at Stade Fred Aubert through Manon Rouzies' penalty and Pilar Khoury's 58th minute effort.

Prior to this game, Oparanozie was on target in their 3-3 at PSG but barrage of misses was their major undoing as they failed to make home advantage count.

The loss means her side remain seventh on the log with 23 points from 19 matches. They face fifth placed Juvisy on May 6 at Stade Robert Bobin with the ambition of returning to winning ways.

The Super Falcons forward has featured 17 times for Sarah M'Barek's side – making just a substitute appearance.
