WAFCON: Our performance in Morocco was a disaster – Izilein
Godwin Izilein, the Former Chief Coach of the senior national female football team, the Super Falcons, has described Nigeria’s outing at the recently held Women African Nations Cup, WAFCON, in Morocco as a disaster for the nation.
“Our standard has gone low. Even the Zambian team that beat our girls are nothing to write home about”, he said, stressing that, “the only people trying a little bit to copy what Nigeria used to be are the South Africans”.
What is paining me is that the NFF don’t want to hear anything about indigenous coaches because they can’t negotiate with us. The foreigner they brought has nothing to offer, they just brought him to siphon our money”, the Edo-born coach said.
He queried the rationale behind keeping the much younger players on the bench and what Onome Ebi was still doing in the team.
