Paris 2024 Qualifier: Waldrum Hails Super Falcons’ Display Against South Africa

Super Falcons head coach, Randy Waldrum has heaped plaudits on his players after they secured a berth at the 2024 Olympic Games.

The former African champions put up a spirited display against the Banyana Banyana of South Africa in the second leg of their final qualifying round fixture at the Lotfus Versfeld Stadium, Pretoria on Tuesday night.

The West Africans held the reigning African champions to a 0-0 draw, scaling through 1-0 on aggregate.

Waldrum praised the players for their spirited display in the keenly contested encounter.

“The team did everything we asked of them to get the result,” Waldrum said after the game.

“We knew South Africa will come at us, we respect them but this was our seventh or eighth clean sheet, we have been very good defensively

“With time and some proper work, we will also be better on the offensive side, which everyone is asking for.”

    Thank God you know things should change offensively

  • “With time and some proper work, we will also be better on the offensive side, which everyone is asking for.”

    This one na coach jare. He knows the weak point and is unafraid to say it. Even though I lost 15k on staking falcons would win in spite of of 1 nil deficit @ 8 odds, the number of clean sheets first is amazing.

    He has asked for a summer camp before the Olympics. Someone said we should praise NFF for doing what they elected themselves to do.

    If they bungle this request and our girls defy the odds again, no second term for those bunch because it is obvious gender discrimination.

    It means they’re likely to not open camp too for WAFCON 2024 preparation.

    Praising NFF demands cautious optimism

    Good game from the super falcons and Nnadozie was at her best in that game, I love her composure. Also, Okeke was superb. Infact, generally they were all good. I think with proper preparation and early camping, Super falcons will win the Olympic.

    • Kris,

      Your statement has sparked a debate in mind. If both players are fit, who starts left back in Plumptre and Okeke?

      Okeke was colossal against South Africa across 2 legs. It’s as if she was never away from the team.

      Imagine, we don’t even have Mercy Idoko, Flourish Sebastian, Esther Onyenezide and Opeyemi Ajakaye anywhere near this Super Falcons they are still soaring higher.

      Jeez!

      Bring on World Champions Spain! We will give them the kiss of Rubiales, sorry I meant the kiss of death.
