Waldrum and the Nigeria Football Federation have been at odds over unpaid salaries, and there is another rumour that the Super Falcons are considering a boycott due to bonuses.
However, prior to the drama, the four-time African Women’s Footballer of the Year reassured Nigerians that the team would give it their all to get the best results, but asked for their support in advance.
“Please, and please, come rain, come sun, stay put with the Super Falcons. We are going to make you proud, and we are going to put in one hundred percent effort, and that’s a promise. We are going to play our hearts out there every time we get the opportunity. But please, we need your support.
