Sweden Coach Rejects Super Falcon’s Job

Though the Nigeria Football Federation, NFF, has not made it official to hire Sweden coach, Pia Sundhage has said she is not ready to handle Nigeria’s senior female team, the Super Falcons.

Sundhage has declared she is “not good enough” to handle African champions as her team sweat to know if they will qualify for the knockout rounds of the Women’s World Cup.

AfricanFootball.com first reported that top officials of the NFF are considering Sundhage to take over the Falcons after they crashed without trace at the World Cup in Canada under the watch of Edwin Okon.

But after seeing her team pick three points from as many matches, scoring four goals and conceding four, former coach of the United States Sundhage noted that she may not be up to take up the chance to coach any Nigerian team right now.

“You know what, today I don’t think I am good enough to coach in Nigeria,” she stated.

Pia Sundhage led her team to a 3-3 draw with Nigeria in their first group game before holding USA to a goalless draw and forcing Australia to a 1-1 draw in the final group game. They would now have to await the outcome of matches in Groups E and F to know their fate at the World Cup.
