Nigeria coach Randy Waldrum says his players are determined to get past the knockout stages of the 2023 Women’s World Cup as the Super Falcons take on England on Monday.

Nigeria team manager, Randy Waldrum is in an optimistic mood ahead of the highly anticipated clash against England at the 2023 Women’s World Cup. The Super Falcons will face their English counterparts in the Round of 16 on Monday. The two teams will cross paths for a place in the quarter-finals at Suncorp Stadium in Brisbane, Australia.

A new challenge for the Nigerian giant who finished second in the group stage behind Australia. And especially that the Super Falcons will face the impressive Lionesses with three victories in group stage.

“Now we made it out of the group stage, we don’t want our work to be done,” Waldrum said in an interview with popular photographer Modo. “We want to continue and I think the match against England is certainly going to be another challenge.”

If coach Waldrum admits that the European champions will be a challenge for Nigeria, the American technician however assures that his ladies are ready for the fight and will not be intimidated by the opponent in front.

“But I think the players understand that we have played the Olympic gold medallists, played Australia, two top 10 teams in the world and I don’t think they will be intimidated by the moment at all and now, it’s time to go out and perform,” he added.
