Waldrum: Super Falcons Fully Prepared For Burundi Clash

Super Falcons head coach Randy Waldrum has said his team is battle ready for Sunday’s Group C encounter against the Swallows of Burundi.

The title holders need a win against Gustave Niyonkuru’s team to be certain of a place in the quarter-finals at the 2022 Africa Women’s Cup of Nations in Morocco.

Waldrum’s side started the competition on a negative note going down to a 2-1 defeat against the Banyana Banyana of South Africa.

The Super Falcons however bounced back, edging out the Mares of Botswana 2-0 on Thursday.

“We want to build on the confidence we gained by winning our second game. When you enter the third group game, as coaches you have to make choices,”Waldrum told a press conference.

” Some of our players have already played 90 minutes twice and it’s a long tournament. If you are lucky enough to have six games, you need to be aware of what you need to do. So we have to try to find that balance”.

The game will kick off at 8pm Nigeria time.

  • Complete Sports Nigeria, please let’s get our facts right: regardless of the outcome of today’s encounter, Nigeria has already qualified for the quarter final..

    • @Deo, are you saying that if Burundi beats Nigeria by 4 goals or more to nil and Botswana beats South Africa even by 1 goal margin, Super Falcons will still qualify for the Quarter final of WAFCON?

      I don’t think you are right in your assertion as the above scenario will place SF last in the group and out of the competition.

  • @deo i disagree with u this is the reason why all our national teams are becoming lazy this days #super falcons must win today’s match

    • Upon reflection Bright and Tony, I agree with both of you that some highly improbable permutations might see the Super Falcons eliminated after today’s games.


  • My worry is the barefaced promotion of Southern African football interest and countries by the current CAF President, Sotuh African Motsepe. I’m confident Nigeria will qualify from the group, but they’ll clash with heavyweight Cameroun in the Quarter Final and one of them will be eliminated from the World Cup. Ghana and Cote D’Ivoire are already out during the West African Zone qualifiers, now Nigeria or Cameroun will be out too. The stronger teams, which are mostly in West and Central Africa are systematically eliminated to pave way for domination by South Africa and their Southern neighbours.

    When Ahmad from Madagascar was there too, out of the blue, Madagascar became a big name in African football – even beating Nigeria who was then being managed by their in-law. Africa and corruption. SMH. Ahmad was eventually kicked out and suddenly his country has found their former level again. When Hayatou was there, Cameroun was winning the Afcon for fun – 3 of them at Nigeria’s expenses and in controversial circumstances.

    And what’s even more annoying is that these despots are helped and supported to the CAF presidency by our own local despot, Pinnick for his own selfish FIFA spot interests. If Buhari and Dare can at least do one good before they leave, they should please remove that Pinnick dude biko.

    • Even if Nigeria and Cameroon face off the quarter finals, the loser still has a chance to qualify for the world cup after two playoffs ; one with fellow African countries and the other with teams from other continents!

      I think it is better to win the quarter final in order to grab an automatic ticket.
