Super Falcons and Levante forward, Ngozi Okobi, has refuted rumors suggesting that the current coach of the Super Falcons, Randy Waldrum, lacks tactical expertise compared to other Nigerian coaches. Speculations arose after Okobi was excluded from Waldrum’s provisional World Cup squad, despite the absence of Rasheedat Ajibade and Halimatu Ayinde in Australia’s first two group-stage games.
Reports claimed that Ngozi Okobi stated that there are superior coaches to the American tactician and that he is not on par with local Nigerian coaches. However, Okobi has taken to social media to clarify that she never made such statements and has warned of legal action against anyone spreading false narratives about her.
In a tweet, Okobi emphasized that she will not comment on the Women’s World Cup squad team until a final decision has been made. She urged those peddling falsehoods to stop or face legal consequences.
The Super Falcons will commence their tournament on July 21st, facing Canada in what could be a crucial match at the Melbourne Rectangular Stadium in Australia.
