Coach of the Super Falcons of Nigeria, Randy Waldrum, has assured that his team will be equal to the task in their third-place match against Zambia in the ongoing WAFCON 2022 on Friday.

The Falcons who missed out on their quest to win a tenth African Women’s Cup of Nations after losing narrowly to hosts, Morocco will take on Zambia at the Stade Mohamed V, Casablanca aiming to secure a third-place finish.

The Nigerian side will be without the trio of Onome Ebi, Halimat Ayinde and Rasheedat Ajibade for the game.

Recall that Ebi picked up a hamstring injury in the semi-final defeat to Morocco and is expected to be out for about six weeks.

On the other hand, Halimat Ayinde and Rasheedat Ajibade are set to miss the match through suspension.

Waldrum during a press conference said, “We have two players suspended as a result of red cards in the last game, and we also have some players down with injury.

“So, there will be changes but we will go for the best legs that would give us victory on Friday.”
