Waldrum was one of over 40 coaches interviewed by our consultants, Phillips Consulting, with that list pruned to four & Waldrum getting the job.

“I’m hopeful that our coach will turn our dominance on the continent to dominance worldwide. Hopefully, with a new man in charge, our women can start proper preparations for football again.”

According to the member association’s official website, Waldrum will work alongside former Super Falcons goalkeeper and captain Ann Chiejine, who will be his first assistant coach, while Wemimo Mathew Olanrewaju will serve as second assistant coach and Auwar Bashir Makwalla will be goalkeeping coach.
