The NFF executive board meeting yesterday announced the appointment of American Randy Waldrum as the new coach (officially the ‘Technical Adviser’) of the Super Falcons.

Prior to his Nigerian appointment, Waldrum was head of coach of the Trinidad and Tabago women’s national team for about 2 years until he was fired in 2016, and also the head coach of the Houston Dash of the National Women’s Soccer League until he was fired in May following a poor run of results.

Gotti,

He has not been officially hired yet. What happened is that the NFF Executive Committee approved the Technical Committee's request to negotiate with Waldrum with the hope of reaching financial agreement at which point he will be officially hired. That is my understanding.

Do you think if he was any good, he'll come to Africa?

One of Ghana's national team coaches was a PE teacher in Serbia

Women college soccer in US is crap.
The Dash were in the last position in the just concluded women's league; I watched all the 10 last finals matches played as well as most of the matches played by the Spirit.

I think he will do fine. By the way, some American coaches have a love for Nigeria, if not for VISA wahala we would see MORE Thomson Usiyans - https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Thompson_Usiyan

Are you serious about Women’s collegiate soccer? Name three US Female internationals that did not pass through the college program. He coached a major program i.e. Fighting Irish. They are as competitive as STanford, NC or Duke.

If Japan can win the world cup. Nigeria can also win it. The women's game is not as competitive as the men's game. Our problem is we spend basically nothing on it. Our women league is not even on TV. Look at England, they are quietly building a strong women's national team program. The Dutch is now dominating Europe. Both England and Holland will soon challenge the US.

That's crazyily strange. I remember after the 94 world cup, the female college games were the most organized female soccer league in the whole world. That's why they were that good, even better than their male counterpart.
