The Super Falcons Of Nigeria Suffered a 1-0 Defeat against Ghana at the Accra Sports Stadium On Sunday in the Africa Women's Cup of Nations Qualifiers. Despite the defeat, Nigeria advanced to the next stage of the AWCON qualifiers after winning 2-1 on aggregate.
We take a look at two mistakes Randy Waldrum made in the game.
1. Using Asisat Oshoala On The Left Wing: After Francisca Ordega was ruled out due to injury, Randy Waldrum used Asisat Oshoala on the left wing. Oshoala didn't feel at home on the left and her performance was poor. She struggled to create any clear chances and lost possession easily. Randy Waldrum should have used her in a number 10 role, as he did in the first leg when she delivered a captain's performance.
2. Late Attacking Substitutions: Randy Waldrum brought on Oparanozie in the closing stages of the game and Dijon Attacker had little time to influence the game. Payne and Gift Monday were struggling against the Black Stars' defense and Waldrum should have brought on Oparanozie early on.
