Randy Waldrum: "We shall get the job done in Ivory Coast"

Super Falcons coach Randy Waldrum believes his team will get a victory against Lady Elephants of Côte d’Ivoire, in the
second leg final qualifier of the 2022 Africa Women Cup of Nations in Abidjan on Wednesday.

Nigeria will be going into the game with a 2-0 advantage obtained last Friday at the Moshood Abiola Stadium in Abuja.

Ifeoma Onumonu’s brace earned the Super Falcons the much-needed victory over Côte d’Ivoire.

“We should play on the front foot in Ivory Coast, we are not to sit back trying to contain them. Though we weren’t at our
best in the first leg but now that we know how good they are, we shall go all out to get the result that will qualify us for the main competition,” Waldrum told Completesports.

“My team played according to instructions even though, we did not entertain but they were able to shut them out. We scored two goals and kept a clean sheet, that is a good platform to start from and hopefully, we shall come back victorious.

“I know they will be aggressive and try to disrupt what we do but we have to prepare our players not to be perturbed by their game plan to stop our flow, but we shall be on the front foot and try to score a goal or two to unsettle them. We shall get the job done in Ivory Coast.

“We shall be smart enough to absolve what the game calls for and whatever they throw at us and go at them. We have to score at least a goal and make things more difficult for them. This team is in much better place and much better players. We will be fine at end of the day, we will qualify,” the American concluded.

The winner over the two legs will qualify for this year’s Africa Women’s Cup of Nations (WAFCON) in Morocco.

The 2022 WAFCON, which will hold from 2nd to 23rd in July, will also serve as qualifiers for the 2023 FIFA Women’s World Cup in Australia and New Zealand.
