Super Falcons coach Randy Waldrum has been offered a two-year deal by the Nigerian Football Federation.

The 65-year old, who was appointed as coach by the NFF in May 2020, qualified for another spot at the Women’s Africa Cup of Nations in Morocco later this year, defeating West African rivals Ghana and Ivory Coast in the qualifying series.

“He (Waldrum) has been offered a contract to continue as coach of the team that will last till after the World Cup,” an official of the NFF stated.

“The coach has achieved the initial mandate given to him by the NFF, which was to qualify the team for WAFCON in Morocco.

“So we are happy with the progress of the team.”

Nigeria are the only African team to have played in all eight Women’s World Cups since 1991, but they have failed to translate their continental dominance to the world stage. Their best performance at the World Cup was in 1999, when they reached the quarter-finals.
