2022 AWCON Qualifiers: Waldrum Expects Tough Match Against Ghana
By Sampson Adedeji
Head coach of the Nigeria’s Super Falcons Randy Waldrum has said he expect a tough a match against Black Queens of Ghana but will focus more on Super Falcons, BSNSports.com.ng reports.
The draw which was conducted on Monday at the CAF headquarters in Cairo pitched Nigeria’s Super Falcons against rivals Black Queens of Ghana.
Since Monday, the draw has generated a lot of debate across Africa and beyond but Waldrum believed Nigeria can come out victorious.
“I think you always embrace the challenge. Obviously, this is a difficult draw, we have a lot of respect for Ghana, and we know the strength and power of that team.
“But as far as the pressure of the job and the task at hand, I think that’s something that any competitor truly embraces, and you know I think the biggest thing for me is that I’m just ready to get to work.”
“Well, I think, right now, I’ve got to do a little more homework, because obviously being from the US I’m a little bit newer to all the African nations but I know the history,”
“I know several of the results over the years against Ghana and I understand, as I mentioned earlier, the strength of this team, so we have a lot of respect for them.
“I think the biggest thing for me right now is worrying about our team and putting together our plan the way we want to play.
“And again, that takes some time and that’s what we’ve been working on this year as we’ve gotten together, and we’ve got a few more international matches coming up in June and September so we’re looking forward to that.
“I think right now, the focus is more on preparing our team properly and as we get closer than we will start to prepare a little bit more for Ghana,” he told Sportnews Africa
