Turkish Women’s Cup: Super Falcons clinch first European trophy


Randy Waldrum has won his first trophy as Super Falcon’s coach after defeating Equatorial Guinea’s Nzalang National 9-0 in their third and final match of the Turkish Women’s Cup competition played at the Emir Sports Complex in Antalya on Tuesday morning.


Waldrum, who recently signed an agreement with NFF, guided the Super Falcons to their first trophy since winning the African Women Cup of Nations in 2018 and their first European trophy.



The 46-year-old, who replaced Coach Thomas Dennerby is excepted by the President of the Nigeria Football Federation to propel the Super Falcons to a higher level in women football’s global ranking.


“We believe that Mr Waldrum is the right man to take the Super Falcons from where the team presently is to that higher level that we want it to be. We have been champions of Africa on nine occasions and it is time that we move up to competing stoutly for honours at global level.”


The Super Falcons won their three matches in the tournament, scoring a total of 11 goals.


In their nine-nil demolition of Equatorial Guinea’s Nzalang National, Captain Asisat Oshoala bagged four goals in the 11th, 13th (penalties), 26th and 85th minute, while defender Gloria Ogbonna (8th minute), Uchenna Kanu (36th), Charity Adule (38th), new-girl Toni Oyedupe Payne (43rd) and Gift Monday (69th) also weighed in to condemn the two-time African champions to a humiliating defeat.
