Waldrum faces the Axe as NFF ExCo demands Super Falcon’s WAFCON fiasco review


The position of Nigeria’s WNT head Coach, Randy Waldrum and his entire staff will be reviewed in the coming weeks and recommendations passed to determine a course of action heading into next year’s FIFA Women’s World Cup.

Rising from it’s General Assembly held, Thursday, in Lagos the Nigeria Football Federation Executive Committee instructed for a review of WNT’s performance at the recently concluded Women’s Africa Cup of Nations where Nigeria fell short.
A less than impressive campaign saw the team pick a World Cup ticket, but finish fourth behind South Africa, Morocco and Zambia in the tournament.
It was Randy Waldrum’s first major tournament with the Super Falcons and it was surely one of the team’s worst outing at the WAFCON.
On the matter of Nigeria’s preparation for the 2023 FIFA Women’s World Cup, the NFF communique reads:
Following a detailed presentation by the Head of Delegation of Nigeria team to the 12th Women Africa Cup of Nations in Morocco, the Executive Committee directed its Technical and Development Sub-Committee to hold a meeting and make recommendations on the way forward for the Senior Women National Team, Super Falcons, including but not limited to a thorough evaluation of the capability of the coaching crew to lead the team to a creditable performance at the FIFA World Cup finals in Australia and New Zealand next year.
Waldrum, 65, was appointed Falcons head Coach two years ago after the dismissal of Sweden’s Thomas Dennerby, who led the team to the WAFCON title in 2018 and the World Cup a year later, reaching the second round.
