The West Africans endured a poor outing at the Africa Women’s Cup of Nations in Morocco where they finished in fourth position.

The Super Falcons have also lost their last five games.


Waldrum also has the unenviable record of having lost more games in a calendar year than any other Super Falcons coach

“I don’t put a lot of weight by what everybody outside says or the results of some games where we know half of those games we have not had our full team together,” he told ESPN.

“We are coaching the players that we have and I am proud of their development and I think the fans will be proud of their performance at the World Cup.”

Waldrum went on to point to Nigeria’s struggles at previous tournaments as evidence that things are not what they used to be: “People talk about the team qualifying with ease for the World Cup in previous years.

“Women’s football was in a different place then. What you are seeing now in the last two World Cup cycles is that the game has grown and developed in Africa like it has in the rest of the world.

“You are seeing countries like South Africa and Morocco putting a lot of resources into women’s football and we have to be careful as a country not to expect to qualify and win the Cup of Nations just because we are Nigeria.

“Even in the last tournament, you advanced to the final and the championship by two games on penalty kicks. It’s not like it was a dominant performance in 2018.”
