Super Falcons of Nigeria on Thursday morning, June 17, lost 2-0 against the United States in their third and final game
at the invitational tournament in Texas which means Waldrum and his women failed to get a win in America.
Nigeria started their campaign in the championship with a defeat against Jamaica with the Super Falcons missing
the likes of Asisat Oshoala and defender Onome Ebi.
However, they produced good performance in their second game against Portugal where they came back
from 3-1 down to draw the encounter.
Speaking to the players after the game against Portugal, captain Asisat Oshoala praised her
teammates urging them to do well against the United States.
But the United States were better than the Super Falcons on match-day as goals from Christen Press and Lynn Williams gave Nigeria in to a 2-0 defeat.
Nigeria would have conceded an early goal in this encounter, but goalkeeper Tochukwu Oluehi was in good shape
as she denied Vlatko Andonovski from scoring according to the report
Despite not winning any match at the US Invitational tournament, Super Falcons coach Waldrum has taken
a positive position from the campaign claiming that his players have learnt lessons.
“The Summer Series have come at a good time for us, as we were able to see a number of new players.
“The girls also came up against strong teams and did not fare badly. Lessons have been learnt and I am delighted with our performance and general attitude on and off the pitch.”
