In an interview with NFF TV, Waldrum stressed that Banyana Banyana cannot stop the Super Falcons from qualifying for the 2024 Olympics.

“This team is a generational team, no disrespect to the other teams, the talent and the depth that is coming into the team, which we saw in Australia (FIFA Women’s World Cup) against some of the best teams around the world,” the Super Falcons coach said.

“We can continue to move on and be a major player on the world stage.

“This team is special and we can be one of the best teams in the world.”
