‘Keep Your Heads Up High’ —Eguavoen Encourages Super Falcons Despite WAFCON 2022 Disappointment

‘Keep Your Heads Up High’  —Eguavoen Encourages Super Falcons Despite WAFCON 2022 Disappointment

Former Super Eagles head coach Austin Eguavoen has praised the Super Falcons for their performance at the 2022 WAFCON, despite ending the tournament empty handed.

For the second time, the Falcons failed to win any medal at the WAFCON after losing 1-0 to Zambia in the third-place match of this year’s edition on Friday.

An own goal by Chiamaka Nnadozie, earned Zambia a first ever win against the Falcons and also a first ever medal in the competition.

However, the two teams will be at next year’s FIFA women’s World Cup to be co-hosted by Australia and New Zealand.

And commenting on the nine-time African champions’ performance Eguavoen, who is the NFF’s Technical Director, states that the Falcons is a young team that will continue to grow.

“Super Falcons, Keep your heads up high. This is a very young team that would continue to grow. There were a lot of brilliant performances on display in Morocco. Massive well done on Qualification for our Ninth straight FIFA World Cup. 🇳🇬

“Be very proud. #TeamNigeria.”

Eguavoen was present in Morocco to cheer the Falcons who were aiming for a 10th WAFCON title.

Meanwhile, hosts Morocco will face South Africa in the final of this year’s tournament.

While the Moroccans will be contesting in a first ever final appearance, the South Africans are making a fifth showing.

      It is impossible for Eguavoen to be returned to the Super Eagles job. He has failed. Even Salisu Yusuf would have done better than Eguavoen.

    I have been WONDERING which PERSON, EX COACH or PLAYER will CONSOLE these GIRLS for them to still BELIEVE in themselves…

    My MIND went to KANU… Something said NO!

    My MIND went to CHRISTAN CHUKWU or even SIASIA.. Something said NO!


    Probay since most of us are not use to FAILURE.. am sure WE are always WINNING in our RESPECTIVE ENDEAVORS..

    But as soon as I remembered EGUAVEON, (and HIS ASSOCIATES like JIMMYBALL) it said a BIG YES…

    What a perfect FIT since HE is an EPITOME of FAILURE himself…

    Eguadiola Complete Sports Selfmade patron. You people will not leave our football alone. The damages done is not enough I guess. Falcons remains falcons I will blame the technical crew and pinnick. Eguadiola what are you still doing in NFF as technical director?

      Selfmade urine is dead. The curse placed on him by Field Marshall was deadly.
      So, shout for joy.

    Young team you said? What is the average age of the squad. I hope the incoming NFF will relieve this man of this unmerited position as technical director! Someone who could not technically direct the Super Eagles in major competitions

    Well said our next NFF president.
