‘ Super Falcons don’t fear anybody ‘ – Randy Waldrum says ahead of Cameroon return-leg clash

Head coach of Nigeria’s Super Falcons, Randy Waldrum, is confident that his team will emerge victorious against Cameroon in Abuja on Monday, February 26, 2024.

This optimism comes after the nine-time African champions were held to a 0-0 draw by the Indomitable Lionesses in the first leg of their 2024 Olympic Games third-round qualifying fixture in Douala on Friday, February 23, 2024.

Despite the contentious ruling out of Jennifer Echegini’s 52nd-minute goal for offside, Waldrum remains undeterred.

Making his return to the Super Falcons in Douala after the World Cup, Waldrum expressed confidence in the team’s ability to compete against top-tier opponents, referencing their performances against the European champions, England, and the Olympic gold medalists, Canada, in previous tournaments.

“We don’t fear anybody,” Waldrum asserted. “We played the European champions (England) to penalty kicks in the World Cup and held the Olympic gold medalist (Canada) to a draw at the World Cup; we got a victory over Australia. We can play with the best teams in the world.”

“I give credit to Cameroon for the job they did. But there is no fear on our part,” the American coach said.

Nigeria is seeking to secure a ticket to the Olympic Games after a long absence.
