Randy Waldrum, the head coach of the Super Falcons, has stated that the bonus dispute with the Nigerian Football Federation (NFF) won’t have an impact on his team’s players.
According to rumors, the Super Falcons will skip their opening match against Canada in the upcoming 2023 FIFA Women’s World Cup because the NFF still owes them money for unpaid payments.
Waldrum and the NFF recently got into a verbal fight over team selection and lack of support.
The team, according to the American, is totally focused on the goal at hand and won’t let anything stand in the way of them winning the World Cup.
We will attend. The team, once we were all here, I believe, really focused on Canada,” Waldrum told Reuters after training on Wednesday. “All of that happened before we came.
We discussed it when we first came, and after that, everyone just agreed to stop talking about it, to keep it out of the public eye, and to focus on our work.
On Friday against Canada, the Super Falcons will open their season in Australia and New Zealand.
