Super Falcons Head Coach Randy Waldrum revealed that he made no changes to the formation that saw them beat CSKA Moscow for the game against Uzbekistan.
The Nigerian women team got off to a perfect start in the Turkish Women Cup after they defeated CSKA Moscow women 1 – 0 in their opener.
Waldrum’s led side made it two-in-two after Halimat Ayinde scored the only goal in the second half to beat Uzbekistan by same score-line.
Speaking in the wake of his girls’ victory over the European team, Waldrum said:
“I didn’t do anything different except for the fact that the match itself was different as the ladies from Moscow played more attack minded football”.
Coach Waldrum entered into the tournament with new faces as Patricia George and Tony Oyedupe Payne were handed their second appearance against Uzbekistan.
“The important thing is to continue to learn how to win , we played against a team that really wanted to sit and keep the game close.
“It was difficult to break their block defensively, but I thought my players showed a lot of patience before breaking their defense”.
The Super Falcons have been stellar in the ongoing tournament, but coach of the team had singled out Patricia George for praise after he played her in two different positions for the two matches.
“I have known her from her days in the US, she could play outside back with the intent of going forward often which we lacked in the first half.
She came in and did quite well for herself”.
The nine-time African champions will play their third match on Tuesday against Equatorial Guinea who had lost by 2 goals to nothing to CSKA Moscow
