The Super Eagles lost to Ghana in yesterday's Africa Women Cup of Nations Qualification. They already won Ghana 2-0 in the first leg and won 2-1 on aggregate. Ghana tried to get back to win on aggregate but the Super falcons stood strong and conceded just one goal at the Ohene Djan Sports stadium. Here are the two mistakes Randy Waldrum made as they lost yesterday's match.
1. Starting Monday Ahead Of Vivian Ikechukwu
Ikechukwu has been one of the best Super falcons players in recent months, she started from the bench today but would have performed better if she appeared in the starting lineup. Vivian Ikechukwu has been known for her goal scoring abilities, that was the main reason why she was recruited to a Super falcons squad. It wasn't the best decision to start her from the bench.
The Super falcons didn't have a bad game yesterday, the failed to give in their very best today and Ghana had the home advantage just as the Super falcons did in their 2-0 win last week. The Super falcons will have to be more lethal and quick in decision making if they want to go farther in the next AWCON.
2. Playing Only Asisat Oshoala Up Front
Asisat Oshoala shouldn't be the only player leading the attack for the Super falcons. It should have been a striker and a second striker just behind Oshoala. Vivian Ikechukwu would have been more effective in these circumstances. Despite yesterday's match results, the Super falcons are still in a good position and are close to qualifying for the AWCON.
