Watford FC midfielder, Adekite Dada has expressed delight in the technical ability of Super Falcons Coach, Randy Waldrum.
The 25-year-old player who joined up with Super Falcons teammates in Abuja in preparation for 2022 African Women’s Cup of Nations (AWCON) Qualifiers against Ivory Coast is elated to be part of the fold.
“He is very technical with lots of technical inputs that I am quite used to in England. I am enjoying it.”
“It’s been good and fun. Everyone has been so welcoming and kind of show me the way. It’s really nice to be involved.”
This will be the first time that Fatuga Dada will be coming to Nigeria after her previous Invitation to the English Women’s U-19 side.
“I am 25, born in England with Nigeria heritage. My father lives in Nigeria actually. I am really honoured to be here with Super Falcons in Abuja. Its been great training with the team to know the girls.”
She said: “I have been invited to a training camp like this for the U-19 English team when I was 16. It was kind of preparation camp for the Euros so it was very hard. This in a sense is hard too because of the weather that I am not used to the weather. It’s been so hot. If you are a Nigerian, it’s in your blood and one can handle it.”
“I am from Lagos originally and this is my first time in Nigeria. My father came in yesterday and this is his first time in Abuja. A lot of firsts for all of us.”
“I started at Watford at 11 and went to Arsenal for a couple of years and came back to Watford.” She concluded.
Fatuga Dada has scored a goal for Watford this season in the 2021/2022 English Women’s Championship against Blackburn Rovers during her side’s 3-1 defeat on September 12, 2021.
The Falcons will battle the Lady Elephants of Ivory Coast in February 2022 to determine who picks the ticket for the 2022 AWCON to be held in Morocco.
The tournament also doubles as the African qualifiers to the 2023 FIFA Women’s World Cup.
The top four teams will qualify for the World Cup in Australia and New Zealand, and two more teams will advance to the inter-confederation play-offs.
