Garba Lawal makes statement on Randy Waldrum

Ex-Nigerian International Garba Lawal has persisted with the Nigerian Football Federation (NFF) to remain with Randy Waldrum as the Women’s national team coach for the sake of continuity.

Recall that in the ongoing Australia-New Zealand 2023 FIFA Women’s World Cup, where the Waldrum-led Super Falcons team scaled through all odds of Group B but was eliminated by the Three Lionesses of England via penalty shootouts of the round of 16 of the tournament.

With the qualifiers of the Paris 2024 Olympic games in hand and the NFF yet to decide Waldrum’s fate, the former Super Eagles forward in an exclusive interview with Completesports.com noted that the American tactician deserves a second chance as Falcons gaffer.

“Waldrum should be saddled with the responsibility of managing the team for the 2024 Olympicgames qualifiers.

“He did a good job with the Super Falcons at the 2023 World Cup even though we lost to England on penalties. However, the team played good football.

“For me, for continuity’s sake, I will urge the NFF to retain Waldrum as Falcons coach”, Lawal said.
