The Super Falcons were brilliant against New Zealand, but the gaffer believes that they still have some work to do
Super Falcons coach Randy Waldrum has admitted that the team still has to improve despite their 3-0 victory over New Zealand on Tuesday.
Soccernet.ng reports that the Super Falcons defeated Haiti 2-1 in their first friendly game last Friday. Then they followed up with a comprehensive 3-0 victory over New Zealand on Tuesday.
Goals from Onome Ebi, Jennifer Echegini, and Desire Oparanozie sealed the 3-0 victory for the nine-time African champions. However, the Super Falcons still looked shaky in some areas. Captain Onome Ebi made a few mistakes that could have cost the team, but goalkeeper Nnadozie was always there to save her blushes.
Also, the attackers lacked the cutting edge on different occasions that they could have scored.
Coach Waldrum was happy with the result, but the American tactician believes there are still some areas that need improvement.
“I would give the team a B, we got the three goals, we got the clean sheet so I guess maybe I’m a little harsh with that grade,” Waldrum told NFF TV.
“But there are still many things that we can work and improve on, but I think we’ll get there.
“I think these last two camps we’ve been good. We’ve gotten better and better. This is what we needed going into the World Cup.”
Waldrum has until July to perfect his plans if he wants the Super Falcons to go far at the World Cup. He would hope that their winning run continues and that they take that form to the World Cup.
