    Coach Waldrum can have all the “confidence in the SF team” but when you fail to prepare and gel in time before the match against a Bayanna team that has camped for two weeks and very well prepared for battle… you are courting defeat. SA female team are a strong force and have beaten Nigeria SF to the WAFCON, and over the last 4 years.

  • Mr. Coach, I wish you all the best.

    I can bet it that not all your players are in camp as the time you a making this comment. We may have better talent but commitment and good preparation also matter. South Africa has opened their camp for the past two weeks. They landed in Nigeria on Sunday. This is the type of commitment and seriousness we are talking about.
    Though, I’m not blaming you as those that call themselves NFF have nothing to offer to Nigeria football.

  • Hopefully Super Falcons will move to South Africa immediately after the game on Friday to also acclimatize and get used to the weather over there.

    The kind of noise Ellis and team have been making lately. Well it’s not their fault, we caused it due to the lackadaisical attitude and approach of our football administrators.

    I pray we humble them and teach them a lesson…..

  • I’m Dav. Nigeria will qualify.
    Please find today a resting hope of assurance. No shaking. Football is a game played on the field not on social media. Listen, Nigeria was technically rubbed against this SA team. Also, Morroco. SA wants to die to defeat Ngr. The universal force favours Nigeria. This is what I have seen.
