Super Falcons head coach Randy Waldrum hinted his players are in proper shape ahead of their opening fixture against Canada at the 2023 FIFA Women’s World Cup
The Nigerian Ladies will begin their quest for a first world title against the Olympic champions at the Melbourne Rectangular Stadium on Thursday.
Waldrum stated that his players are battle ready for the Canadians.
“Good, good session, a good day, we did load them a little bit,” Waldrum said in a short video interview posted on NFF Twitter handle.
“The players were into it, it was intense and then we got a chance to work on some of the tactics, so very pleased with training today.
“Obviously the weather is going to be a little bit of a factor, it’s colder there than it is here, it’s winter in Australia, so we’re just going to have to adapt to it.
“It’s a 12:30 kick -off midday game, so that should help a little bit with the weather. I think the thing is you get to this point you just have to play in the elements whatever they are you’re at the World Cup.
“But I think the players are prepared, I think they understand the game plan, now we just have to make sure we execute it.”
The Super Falcons will also face co-hosts Australia and Republic of Ireland in the same group.
The tournament will be co-hosted by Australia and New Zealand will start on Thursday.
