In a noteworthy recognition of their achievements, American Coach Randy Waldrum and the Super Falcons of Nigeria find themselves on the final shortlist for the prestigious 2023 CAF Coach of the Year and Women’s National Team of the Year awards, respectively, MySportDab report.

Waldrum, who served as the Head Coach of the Super Falcons during the relevant period, is among the top five nominees for the CAF Women’s Coach of the Year.

His inclusion in the shortlist reflects the impact he had on the team’s performance during the year under review. The Super Falcons, under his guidance, have earned recognition for their outstanding display at the 2023 FIFA Women’s World Cup.

The announcement of the final shortlist was made by the African football governing body, CAF, on their official Twitter handle.

The Super Falcons of Nigeria are in distinguished company, sharing the shortlist for Women’s National Team of the Year with South Africa, Morocco, Zambia, and Senegal. The recognition comes as a testament to the team’s remarkable achievements during the specified period.


In the Coach of the Year category, Randy Waldrum faces stiff competition. The nominees include the current holder, Desiree Ellis, along with Jerry Tshabalala, Reynald Pedros, and Mehdiel Qaichouri. This acknowledgment highlights the impact of Waldrum’s coaching prowess during his tenure with the Super Falcons.


The award ceremony, where the winners will be announced, is scheduled to take place in December. This recognition adds to the prestige of both Waldrum and the Super Falcons, showcasing their contributions to women’s football on the African continent.

It’s worth noting that since returning to America after the Women’s World Cup, Randy Waldrum has not resumed his role with the Super Falcons.

As the football community eagerly anticipates the award ceremony in December, the shortlisting of Waldrum and the Super Falcons reflects their impactful presence on the African football stage during the assessed period.
