Nigeria’s Super Falcons back to winning ways with Waldrum


Match agent Jairo Pachon of Eurodata who organised   the tournament along with MC Sport  agency said  it was a great start  for the Super Falcons under Waldrum who is the third foreigner to manage the Nigerians.

 “It is a good way for the new coach to begin his mandate with the Super Falcons and it was also a good opportunity for the players to get together after a long lay-off without international matches,” Pachon noted.

Meanwhile, in their first game since being eliminated by Cote d’Ivoire in the qualifying tournament for Tokyo 2020 Olympics’ football event 16 months ago, the Super Falcons opened their account at the Emir Sports Complex in Antalya with a 1-0 win over CSKA Moscow Ladies courtesy of Chinwendu  Ihezuo’s strike. Midfielder Halimatu Ayinde scored the solitary match winner against Uzbekistan in the team’s second match.
