Randy Waldrum led the Super Falcons of Nigeria to the round of sixteen of the 2023 FIFA Women’s World Cup where they were knocked out by England.

Super Falcons head coach, Randy Waldrum has assured the Nigerian populace that the Nigerian female football team will emerge victorious over Cameroon, Soccernet.ng reports.

Waldrum, 67, has been in charge of the Super Falcons since 2020 and has grown a great relationship with the team and the results on the pitch tell the same story.

Ahead of Nigeria’s game against Cameroon, the American tactician has assured the fans of victory against the Indomitable Lionesses when both sides meet in the penultimate Olympic qualifier clash on Friday.

“I think we have the players. You can take any manager, but they can’t do much if they don’t have the players. So I think we have the players. It’s just a matter of getting these results in such a short time. I am confident in our coaching staff and confident in the players,” the former Houston Dash manager exclusively revealed to Soccernet.ng.

The manager also hinted that the team’s performance at the World Cup has played a huge part in their great form and he wants that to continue.

“Coming off the World Cup, I think the players are in great spirits and we respect Cameroon. We know it’ll be a great match, both legs, but I think we’ll be ready,” he added.

Quizzed about his longevity with the Super Falcons, the coach mentions he now feels at home with the team and is grateful for the chance to lead the team in the right direction.

“I feel at home with the Super Falcons, it’s been a long journey, with a lot of ups and downs. Any coach will tell you that you need time with the team, and as we saw with the men’s team, they made us proud and congratulations to them. So we can see that it takes time to get things going in the right direction. I think we’re headed there and I’m happy with where we are,” the manager concluded.

A win over Cameroon is all that stands between the Super Falcons and a place at the Paris 2024 Olympics. Both teams will face off in Douala on Friday.
