Super Falcons Must Sharpen Attack Before Olympics — Waldrum

Super Falcons head coach, Randy Waldrum admitted that his side must improve in attack to have a good outing at the 2024 Olympic Games.

The nine-time African champions are making a return to the Olympics after a 16-year absence.

“It is a huge accomplishment for Nigeria and we defended brilliantly. There is work to be done when it comes to our attack, and we will improve before heading to France,”the 67-year-old told French outlet, France 24.

  • The beauty of the whole thing is that the coach is aware of the challenge and I pray God to give him wisdom and enablement to do the needful.

    NFF, it’s your duty to provide all the necessary supports.

    God bless Nigeria.

  • He is quiet and goes about his job same way.Most people didn’t give a chance especially one sport journalist with one of Nigeria leading televisión station who insisted that South África will score goals.But at the end of the day he said though the job was done that he was not impressed the way they placed.
    Our team should be respected by now as they started showing class from the world cup.The Coach knows where to improve on and I am sure he will get things done.All the hype about the altitude and South Africa invisibility were made of no effective.Kudos to Super Falcons and more grace and victories.

  • With good preparation, the girls can advance. Though the group is tough. I was sure they were going to qualify ahead of South Africa.

    South Africa were busy making nonesense noises. They didn’t look at the strength of the Nigerian team. It was evident at the world cup that SF is strong defensively. The moment south Africa failed to score in the first leg and even conceded a goal, I knew they were out.

    You can’t beat a team which stronger teams at the world cup found difficult scoring against.

    Sorry south Africa. Better luck against other teams next time.

    Super eagles will put a final hammer on their heads by beating then home and away.

    South Africa wants to start behaving like Ghana to Nigeria. They should know that they are not in that league yet. They should hold on to their mamelodi exploits in the champions league.

    Shooting! shooting!! and more shooting!!! What has happened to Nigerian teams? Or is shooting no longer a skill of the game? All our teams should start practicing shooting from long range, not aimless shooting but long range shots on target and then leave the goalkeeper to answer to it.

    We must not always aim at dribbling or moving to the opponent’s goal area to do tap-in, let’s shoot!

    Flying Eagles lost to Uganda at the Africa Games vide a long range shot; likewise Falconets to Ghana in the final match. We must start shooting!
