Head coach of Nigeria’s women national team, Randy Waldrum, has admitted that Morocco poses a big threat to him, ahead of Monday’s Women’s Africa Cup of Nations (WAFCON) semi-final clash.



The Super Falcons qualified for the last four thanks to a 1-0 win over Cameroon in the quarter-final.

The hosts beat Botswana 2-1 to reach the last four – their best performance ever since making their debut in 1998.

Nigeria may be favourites to reach the final, but Waldrum feels the Lionesses of Atlas also have a chance when both countries face off at the Prince Moulay Abdellah Stadium in Rabat.

“I saw them for the first time in September and I was very impressed by the quality of their team and by the football they play,” Waldrum told the Caf website.
I said as soon as I arrived in Morocco that they are the team that can surprise. I know how this team has developed for three years now.
“They are one of the best teams in the competition and are capable of beating any other team."
“We have respect for Morocco and the way they have played in this tournament." It’s a big challenge for us.
“Certainly, we have a lot of experience and a lot of people see us as favourites, but in football, everything is possible and we have to be ready for this game.”
