Super Falcons head coach, Randy Waldrum on Monday said the team was disappointed not to have won against Ireland in their last group game of the 2023 FIFA Women’s World Cup.
Coach Waldrum, however, praised the Super Falcons for the doggedness to qualify for the Round of 16 of the tournament.
“You know, I was actually disappointed in the second half because we could have won the match. So, it almost feels disappointing that we didn’t get the result, the three points.
“But all of us would have taken this result before we started the match just to know we got through,” he said.
The nine-time African champions will now face Group D winners, in either European champions England or Denmark in the Round of 16.
“If it’s England, it’s the European champions. We’ve already played the Olympic gold medallists (Canada). We’ve already played the host nation (Australia).
“So, it’s just going to be another one of those matches that we’ve already been playing in,” Waldrum said.
