Nigeria’s dominance in Women’s Football in Africa is waning and the semi-final defeat to Morocco in the Nations Cup is another strong indication, says former WNT assistant Coach Mansur Abdullahi.
Abdullahi told Brila.net that the manner Nigeria’s defeat has shown that other Teams in Africa are moving swiftly in Women’s Football development while Administrators stay deluded with Nigeria’s “might”.
The Coach insists the game has not seen a major growth in the Country and this will mean the gap with hitherto struggling nations will continue to close.
Morocco advanced to the final of the Women’s Africa Cup of Nations 5-4 on penalties after the sides settled for a 1-1 outcome through 120 minutes.
Meanwhile, Nigeria was reduced to 9 Players following red cards to Halimatu Ayinde and Rasheedat Ajibade.
Super Falcons Coach Randy Waldrum will be with the two Players when the team faces Zambia’s She-polopolo in the third place play-off on July 22.
