Super Falcons head coach Randy Waldrum has expressed optimism that his team will put up a stronger performance to get 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.
The Falcons go into the game with a 2-0 advantage obtained last Friday in Abuja. The eventual winner qualifies for the AWCON billed for July this year in Morocco.
“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 tegba news.
“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.
Falcons arrived Abidjan on Sunday and have began to train for the match.
