Super Falcons: Inspite of the loss, we are still positive- Coach Waldrum

The Super Falcons of Nigeria’s head coach, Randy Waldrum, claims that his squad is unfazed by their 1-2 loss to South Africa at the 2022 Women’s Africa Cup of Nations (WAFCON).

According to the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN), the nine-time champs had a difficult day at work.

This came after they dropped their opening Group C match of the 2022 WAFCON, 1-2, to South Africa’s Banyana Banyana.

With more competition victories than any other country on the continent, the Super Falcons entered the match against South Africa as the favourites.

However, Banyana Banyana destabilized their opponents, who were taken off guard by the quick-firing South Africans, by scoring twice in two minutes due to goals from Jermaine Seoposenwe and Hilda Magaia in the 60th and 62nd minutes, respectively.

Rasheedat Ajibade’s stunning finish gave the Super Falcons their lone goal in the first minute of stoppage time, but it was too late as South Africa rallied and won the game.

Waldrum told newsmen during his post-match conference that his team was in good spirit, inspite of the loss, adding that they intend to go back to the drawing board and work on all their mistakes.

“Inspite of the loss, we are still positive in camp. It is obviously the first game of the tournament so we have to go back and regroup.

“We have to increase our urgency in the fighting spirit because we are encouraged by it.

“We have to play the way we played in the last 10-15 minutes so that we get going,” Waldrum said.

After crushing Burundi 4-1 in their debut match, Botswana now sit atop Group C with three points and a better goal differential of +3.

With three points and a goal differential of +1, South Africa is likewise in second place going into their upcoming match on Thursday against Burundi, who are in last place.

Nigeria, who is now in third place, will play Botswana that same day at 8 p.m. (NAN)
