Without mincing words, the Super Falcons flamboyant head coach Randy Waldrum has affirmed his intentions to power Nigeria to Wafcon victory on the way to making the Super Falcons a powerhouse in world football.
In a report I monitored on CAFonline, Waldrum issued the following statement:
“The first priority is obviously to qualify for the FIFA Women’s World Cup. That has always been the objective for us.
This means we must have success in the group stage. We always want and expect to win whenever we step on the field, so our goal also will be to win the women’s AFCON.
[To do this] we must remain focused and continue improving in some areas in order to become a world power which we are capable of achieving,” he concluded.
The Super Falcons are grouped with Botswana, Burundi and familiar foes South Africa.
We will open our campaign against South Africa on July 4 at Prince Heritier Moulay El Hassan Stadium in Rabat and take on Botswana three days later. We will then wrap up the group phase against debutants Burundi on July 10.
Under Randy Waldrum, Nigeria has returned 7 wins, 2 draws and 5 losses. A number of those games have been against some of the best teams in women’s football including the USA, Canada and Portugal.
The Super Falcons’ style of play under Waldrum is characterised by pragmatism, compactness, resilience, focus and character.
They are yet to add eloquence, flamboyance and flair to their play. This, however, doesn’t seem to bother a bevy of fans so long as the Super Falcons are getting the job done.
