Don’t expect Super Falcons to win all the time — Waldrum

Don’t expect Super Falcons to win all the time — Waldrum

Randy Waldrum has react to the recent poor run of Super Falcons under his watch.

Waldrum came under increasing pressure from the fans and section of the media following the team’s recent underwhelming performances.

The Nigerian senior women football national team were beaten 2-1 by Nadeshiko Japan in an international friendly on Thursday.

The result means the team has now lost their last five matches, including embarrassing defeat to lowly rated Shepolopolo of Zambia during last African Women’s Championship in Morocco.

Speaking with ESPN, the American however played the run, insisting he pays no attention to what his critics are saying.

“I don’t put a lot of weight by what everybody outside says or the results of some games where we know half of those games we have not had our full team together,” he told ESPN.

“We are coaching the players that we have and I am proud of their development and I think the fans will be proud of their performance at the World Cup.”

The former Trinidad and Tobago coach explained further that, other African nations are now investing heavily in women football, which has limited Nigeria’s dominance on the continent of Africa.

“People talk about the team qualifying with ease for the World Cup in previous years.

“Women’s football was in a different place then. What you are seeing now in the last two World Cup cycles is that the game has grown and developed in Africa like it has in the rest of the world.

“You are seeing countries like South Africa and Morocco putting a lot of resources into women’s football and we have to be careful as a country not to expect to qualify and win the Cup of Nations just because we are Nigeria.

“Even in the last tournament, you advanced to the final and the championship by two games on penalty kicks. It’s not like it was a dominant performance in 2018,” He said.
