Waldrum tips Super Falcons to replicate Morocco’s Qatar feat

Morocco became the first African Nation to reach the semifinal of the World Cup last time out in Qatar, and Waldrum believes his ladies can replicate that feat

Super Falcons coach Randy Waldrum believes that Nigeria can replicate Morocco’s 2022 World Cup feat and reach the semifinal of the 2023 FIFA World Cup.

Morocco shocked Africa and the rest of the World after an amazing run that saw them reach the final four of the World Cup in Qatar. The Atlas Lions claimed some big scalps on the way to the semifinals.

They defeated Belgium, Spain, and Portugal before they lost 2-0 to France in the semifinal despite a spirited performance.

The Super Falcons play in the Women’s World Cup later this year in Australia/New Zealand. Ahead of the Mundial, Waldrum is hoping his ladies can take a leaf from the Moroccans and replicate their feat.


“Morocco’s feat shows that it is possible to reach the semifinal of the World Cup, Waldrum told FIFA TV.

“They had a game plan and the players stuck to it. Morocco were great in their defensive block. They played as a team. I’d say that Morocco’s success has to give you confidence”


Nigeria is the most successful African team on the continent. However, they have never been able to translate it to the World Stage.

The Super Falcons’ best finish at the World Cup was in 1999 when they reached the quarterfinals. Asides from that, the team has wobbled and fumbled.

Waldrum has not inspired much confidence since he took over either. The team had one of their worst finishes at the Women’s Africa Cup of Nations last time out, finishing fourth.

Nonetheless, the American coach would hope that his team hits form at the tournament. The Super are drawn with Australia, Ireland, and Canada.
