Waldrum out! NFF tasked to fire Super Falcons coach after Japan slump - Fans

Randy Waldrum, coach of Nigeria during the Women’s Africa Cup Of Nations 2022.
The nine-time African champions have now lost their last five matches under the tutelage of the 66-year-old American tactician.

Nigeria women’s 2-0 defeat to Japan in Thursday’s international friendly has fuelled the anger of fans who want coach Randy Waldrum fired.

A second-half brace from Mina Tanaka downed the Super Falcons as they continue their preparations for the 2023 Fifa Women’s World Cup billed for Australia and New Zealand.

Heading into the fixture against the former World Cup winners, the West Africans had lost their last four games.

Against the Asians, many expected the Nigerians to return to winning ways. However, they stuttered at the Kobe Stadium without captain Onome Ebi and Barcelona star Asisat Oshoala.

Angered by the team’s poor run of results – their worst ever, enthusiasts have stormed social media to ask the American to quit his role or get axed.

    How Japan caged Super Falcons

    'Nigeria's Super Falcons were this morning beaten 2-0 in an international friendly match against former World champions, Japan. Two second-half goals from Mina Tanaka handed the hosts a comfortable victory over the 11-time African champions - @MakingOfChamps

  • Nigeria coach Randy Waldrum.

    Sack Waldrum now!

    The Super Falcons have now lost five straight matches since their Wafcon win over Cameroon in July. Shouldn't we be very worried? What is Waldrum doing? - @NurudeenObalola

    Indigenous coaches to the rescue

    So the Super Falcons lost to Japan in the friendly 2-0. Randy Waldrum is not a good coach. The NFF should just retrace their step and bring back indigenous coaches. These white coaches are killing our football. - @ojobabatundeiso

  • Ibrahim Gusau of NFF.

    A passionate appeal to the new NFF president

    To the NFF new Boss Alhaji Ibrahim Gusau, one of the most important points of call is to relieve Mr. Randy Waldrum of his position as Head coach of the Super Falcons. Waldrum has turned our best-performing national team into a disjointed group of talents lacking any direction. - @Chidiezeani

    Show some players the way out

    The Super Falcons still have a long way to go at the World stage. These friendly games is good for the team. But I feel some players should be let go from the squad. - @jiiresjewel

    Double-standards by the NFF

    NFF, why’s Waldrum still the coach of the Super Falcons? We had our worst appearance at the last Wafcon and he’s still in Charge.. if it was a Nigerian, I’m 100% sure he or she would have been sacked immediately. Nonsense. - @Buchi_Laba

    Disaster awaits at the Women's World Cup

    So NFF are still allowing this Randy Waldrum to take the Super falcons to the World Cup. They may not win a single game there. - @ChukyUnfazed
  • Ifeoma Onumonu of Nigeria, Super Falcons

    Falcons' slow and steady decline

    We have watched the Super Falcons retrogress drastically under his tutelage. We have too much talent to be just counted as participants at the next World Cup. - @Chidiezeani
