Super Falcons head coach Randy Waldrum has called for continued support from Nigerians as they continue their voyage in the 2023 FIFA Women’s World Cup.
The Falcons held Canada to a stalemate at full time during their first game in the group B. They remain the only African country with the best performance after Zambia and South African lost their first group game. Morocco will play their first game later this morning against Germany.
Waldrum spoke after the team’s recovery session on Saturday:
“After the first game, we had a recovery session for the players and gave them a little bit of a break in the afternoon as well because they’ve been so isolated in camp. It was good for them to be out. We have been training late in the evening to simulate the time of our match against Australia and so far, the mood in camp is in a very good place right now,” Waldrum said.
“Keep supporting us, we appreciate all the messages from home in Nigeria as well as Nigerians in Australia. They were a great support in the stadium. Keep sending positive vibes to us because we are all in this together.”
Nigeria will play their second group game against Australia at 11 am on Thursday, then their last group tie against the Republic of Ireland on July 31.
