The Nigeria Football Federation is not satisfied with the performance of the Super Falcons under American gaffer Randy Waldrum.
The Super Falcons suffered a 1-0 defeat to the Black Queens of Ghana in Accra in the final leg of the 2022 African Women’s Championship last Sunday.
Although, the Nine time African Champions managed to move into the last round of the qualifiers on 2-1 aggregate, the Nigerian Football Governing Body are not impressed with the overall performances.
The General Secretary of the NFF, Dr Mohammed Sanusi confirmed that the NFF has concluded arrangements to reinvigorate the team technically, and also strengthen the playing body.
“I will start by congratulating the team for the victory over the Black Queens of Ghana. It was a sweet one given the rivalry between our two countries in the game, which dates back to 70 years. Notwithstanding, there are deficiencies that we must deal with squarely and without any ambiguity in order that the team will be ready for the challenges ahead.
“The Super Falcons can, and should, exhibit far greater marksmanship. We have the players at home and abroad to outrun and outplay any team on the African continent, and even compete favourably on the world stage. That is why we have to make the move to reinvigorate the team ahead of the final round of qualifiers against Cote d’Ivoire. The rejuvenation is with an objective for better focus, commitment and productivity.”
The Falcons will take on Cote d’Ivoire’s Lady Elephants in the final round of the qualifiers.
It could be recalled that the lady Elephants eliminated the Falcons from the race to the Women’s Football Tournament of the Tokyo Olympic Games which held two months ago.
