Apparently dissatisfied with the performances of his team in the recent matches, Super Falcons Head Coach Randy Waldrum may have identified some potential Falcons players within the ranks of the national U-20 women’s team, the Falconets currently camping in Abuja that may be invited to the senior camp.

Waldrum whose Falcons are also holding a nine days training camp in Abuja has already identified a handful of talented young players he will invite to the senior team to compete for shirts with some Falcons veterans who may no longer give him what he wants at the moment.
Prompt News reports that the American-born gaffer has taken more than keen interest in the Falconets as he watched their training sessions since Monday when his own team started training at the same FIFA Goals Project Pitch at Package B of Moshood Abiola National Stadium,  Abuja.
Waldrum who also on Saturday watched Falconets draw 1-1 with A S Roma Boys Academy, Abuja in a training match at FIFA Goals Project Pitch is expected to invite the identified players when Falcons resume camp early  next year ahead of the two-leg African Women’s Cup of Nations (AWCON) Morocco 2022 qualifier ties against Cote d’ Ivoire’s ‘La Elephants’.

A member of the team who pleaded anonymity said Waldrum has already sounded out Falconets Head Coach, Christopher Musa Danjuma about allowing the Falcons prospects to train with the “big girls” but was asked to excuse them for now.

The Falconets themselves are travelling to Congo Brazaville next week for the first leg of FIFA U-20 Women’s World Cup African qualifier match. The return leg will be played in Lagos. The Nigerian team eliminated Central African Republic (CAR) to qualify for the third round.
 Meanwhile, Waldrum who is determined to rejig the entire Super Falcons squad was seen on Saturday morning and evening supervising the Falcons
training sessions at FIFA Goal Project Pitch even as the 28 players currently in Abuja camp are working hard to impress the American soccer tactician.
