WAFCON 22: Waldrum Predicts Nigeria vs Burundi Match

Ahead of Nigeria’s last Group C fixture against Burundi later tonight, Head Coach of the Super Falcons, Coach Randy Waldrum has told Nigerians not to expect massive changes in the starting eleven that played Nigeria’s last game.

Speaking during the pre-match conference at the Prince Moulay Abdellah Stadium on Saturday, the 65-year-old American gaffer told pressmen he is trying to build balance in his starting eleven as he builds on the continuity of Nigeria’s 2-0 victory against Botswana.

“So these are some of the challenges of being a coach and so that’s kind of what we’ll go into, trying to find that balance.

“I wouldn’t expect massive changes. I said, we want to build on the continuity of the last game, but we also want to be mindful of some rest.” Coach Waldrum said.

He also went ahead to analyse the strength of the Burundi Women National Team and how the Super Falcons will approach the game.

“We’re not looking at the mathematics, we’re looking at it as we need to win to advance and so that will be the approach that the team will take because we must go secure the win first and that’s the look they’ve scored in every match so far, they’re fully capable of creating problems for us and we know that and we have to respect that.

“So we can’t overlook or bared by any special imagination. We have to go into a very serious approach and knowing that we need to get on there

“The good news is we have player options, we just need to make the decisions which ones we think is the best, the best combination together.” The American gaffer added.
