Super Falcons coach Randy Waldrum will be aiming for his third win in as many games as manager of the African champions, when they take on Equatorial Guinea at the Emir Sports Complex in their final game of the Turkish Women’s Cup tournament on Tuesday.
The 1999 World Cup quarter-finalists edged Uzbekistan 1-0 on Saturday evening – same scoreline they recorded over CSKA Moscow in their tournament opener on Thursday.
Equatorial Guinea have not exactly created any sensation at the tournament in Turkey, after losing their two matche s to Uzbekistan and CSKA Moscow, conceded seven goals in the process.
“It is good to sustain the habit of winning,” Waldrum said after his second win with the Falcons.
“That winning mentality is key and once we habitualize it, we keep it and keep going with it. We will need it in qualifying matches and the big tournaments.”
Equatorial Guinea are the only team to have denied the Falcons the Africa Women Cup of Nations title, when they defeated the Falcons on home soil at the 2008 edition.
