Swede coach Pia Sundhage turns down Falcons’ job

Sweden coach Pia Sundhage has declared she is “not good enough” to handle African champions, the Super Falcons of Nigeria as her team sweat to know if they will qualify for the knockout rounds of the ongoing seventh FIFA Women’s World Cup in Canada.

AfricanFootball first reported that top officials of the Nigeria Football Federation 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 the United States of America 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.
