WAFCON 2022: Waldrum Hails Super Falcons ‘Spirited  Display’ Vs Morocco

Super Falcons head coach Randy Waldrum says his players gave their all on the pitch in Monday night’s defeat to the Atlas Lionesses of Morocco.

The defending champions failed to make it to the final of the 2022 Africa Women’s Cup of Nations after a 5-4 penalty shootout defeat to the hosts.

Waldrum’s side played majority of the game with nine players after Halimat Ayinde and Rasheedat Ajibade were dismissed for poor tackles.

The American tactician heaped plaudits on his players for their doggedness despite the defeat.

“We wanted to win the game, not just the World Cup ticket. Our substitutions were spot on and we can’t ask for more from the players, they gave their best,”Waldrum said after the game.

The American tactician also shared his thoughts on the officiating in the game.

“We (Coaches) can’t comment on officiating, we will get into trouble,”he added.

“We were in control of the game until after the first red card, then the second red card, I will put it this way.”

    Love the comment “We Coaches Can’t Comment On Officiating, We’ll Get Into Trouble” Motsepe will rule African Football for decades like Hayatou did and he’s will be worst because Nigeria Ghana Ivory Coast will all be zoned against each other until only God knows and should any make it to Tournaments they’ll be playing against referees. Hayatou was even better because we weren’t playing qualifiers against perennial rivals not until Pinnick and co voted the Madagascar businessman who changed the rules to favor the weak nations and Motsepe inherited it and even made more worse politics out of it. African award is on Thursday let’s see the dramas that will unfold. Naija never see nothing!
