Randy Waldrum is happy with the talents at his disposal and will continue to give the players equal opportunity to play at the ongoing 2022 WAFCON in Morocco.
The Super Falcons lost Asisat Oshoala to injury, as she was ruled out of the rest of the tournament.
However, the coach has managed to get the team to perform at a high level, despite making some changes to the team.
Uchenna Kanu, Monday Gift, Nicole Payne, Christy Ucheibe, and Peace Efih have all been given chance to shine in the tournament.
Waldrum said: “We have also given an opportunity to younger players to get a feel of the tournament so that we can also rest some of the players that have played heavy minutes.”
“I am very impressed. You can see it. We started Uchenna [Kanu] and she came through. Rasheedat [Ajibade] was great today. Peace [Ewomazino Efih] and Uchenna were great in the midfield.”
“We have talent that is very beneficial. We have more good players to select from. I have confidence in what we are doing and we are in a really good place.”
Nigeria beat Burundi 4-0 to set up a heavyweight clash with Cameroon in the quarter-final.
Nigeria qualified with six points from Group C and scored the most goals in the tournament, finding the back of the net an incredible seven times while only conceding twice – both goals from South Africa.
