Former Super Falcons of Nigeria coach, Godwin Izilein, said the team has the potential to surpass its quarter finals record under the leadership of coach Randy Waldrum at the ongoing FIFA Women’s World Cup in Australia and New Zealand.

Izilein said this in an interview in Calabar, Cross Rivers State. He said the players needed to improve on the team’s cohesion for a better outing in their coming game, adding that the team’s performance so far at the ongoing female world cup was encouraging.

”So far, the team has surpassed the expectations of many. The team can indeed surpass its previous record of reaching the quarter finals,” Izilein said.

“The girls need to ensure effective possession of the ball. This is lacking in the Falcons team now. It is advantageous to keep possession of the ball. Our girls also need to learn how to mark when dispossessed.”

“You can see that there is need to improve on our performance. We have the materials, the girls are strong and experienced. we can achieve it,” Izilein added.
