Super Falcons unfazed despite loss to South Africa — Coach

Randy Waldrum, Head Coach of the Falcons of Nigeria, says his team is unfazed in spite of their 1-2 loss to South Africa at the 2022 Women’s Africa Cup of Nations.

The News Agency of Nigeria reports that It was bad day on Monday for the -time African champions at the WAFCON.

This was after they suffered a 1-2 loss to Banyana Banyana of South Africa in their Group C opening game of the 2022 WAFCON.

The Falcons came into the game against South Africa as favourites, having won the competition more than any other nation on the continent.

The Banyana Banyana however scored twice in two minutes thanks to Jermaine Seoposenwe and Hilda Magaia goals in the 60th and 62nd minutes to destabilise their opponents, who were caught off-guard by the quick firing South Africans.

The Falcons eventually found a goal in the first minute of added time, thanks to an incredible finish by Rasheedat Ajibade.

But it was too late as South Africa reorganised themselves and bagged the three points.

Waldrum told newsmen during his post-match conference that his team was in good spirit in spite of the loss, adding that they intend to go back to the drawing board and work on all their mistakes.
