New Head Coach of the Super Falcons American Randy Waldrum has released the list of players to prosecute the Turkish Invitational tournament scheduled to take place from15 to 24 February. Reigning African champions Nigeria will land in Antalya Turkey on Monday to participate in the fifth edition of the tournament. And thus the journey begins. Head Coach, American Randy Waldrum has inherited a team that are the current African Champions and World Cup second rounders. The brand of football under Thomas Dennerby wasn’t always convincingly effective. He managed to win the Afcon and had others to thank for Super Falcons scaling through to the world cup round of 16 (where his girls were soundly spanked by Germany). I will be interested to what Head Coach, American Randy Waldrum has to offer starting with this Turkey Invitational tournament. The list is made up of the nucleus of the squad that participated in the 2019 FIFA Women's World Cup.
