Super Falcons head coach Randy Waldrum has said his players will not be affected by the bonus saga with the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF).

There were reports the Super Falcons will boycott their opening fixture against Canada at the upcoming 2023 FIFA Women’s World Cup due to the backlog of salaries owed to them by the NFF.

Waldrum recently engaged in a war of words with the NFF over team selection and lack of support.

The American, however, said the team is firmly focused on the task ahead and will not allow anything to distract them from achieving their target at the World Cup.

“We will be there. All of that transpired before we came and I think the team, once we all arrived here, have just focused on Canada,” Waldrum told Reuters after training on Wednesday.

“We met about it the first night we arrived, and at that point, we all just agreed not to continue to discuss it, not let it be out there and that we’re here to do a job.”

The Super Falcons will start their campaign in Australia and New Zealand against Canada on Friday.
