Peseiro: Super Eagles Must Avoid Mistakes Against Guinea-Bissau, Confident Of Victory

Super Eagles head coach, Jose Peseiro has said his team must avoid the same mistakes which led to their defeat against the Djurtus of Guinea-Bissau last Friday.

The three-time African champions fell to a shocking 1-0 defeat to the Djurtus in front of a passionate home crowd at the Moshood Abiola Stadium, Abuja.

Peseiro’s side dominated possession in the game but were let down by their profligacy in front of goal.

The Portuguese stated that his team must be clinical this time around.

“I gave my opinion after the first match. I watched the video again yesterday and our team missed a lot of chances. The strikers missed a lot of chances,” Peseiro said during his interaction with the media.

” The performance was not bad but we need to score goals. That’s the most important thing. It is not normal when a team like us missed too many chances like we did on Friday.

*We moved the ball well, played offensively too and shoot the ball well. I think it is better yuu create opportunities than not.

“I want my team to do the same but avoid mistakes. We made too many mistakes in the first game. We must avoid doing same in the second game.

“It’s important for us to be clinical in front of goal, to finish well when we have the chances.”

Peseiro also emphasized the need for his team to respect their opponent and also claimed his team’s main objective is to win the game.

“We need to respect all the teams. We have to beat Guinea-Bissau, Our responsibility is to defend our country, our flag, We have to beat Guinea-Bissau,”he added.

“We are one of the best teams in Africa. Guinea-Bissau are at the moment in first position but we want to beat them and regain our position

“If we are able to convert our chances, it will be a different match. ”

The former Venezuela and Saudi Arabia once again defended his players despite the defeat in the first game.

“Our team produce in attack. For us to beat Sao Tome and Principe 10-0 is a prove of that,” Peseiro stated.

“We beat Sierra Leone. We could have defeated Guinea-Bissau but for luck that was against us. The pitch was fine, we shoot so many times but the ball refused to go in.

“I’m not defending my players. They did well even though they need to show more concentration and finish well too.”

Peseiro also reflected on the officiating from the first leg.

The referee also denied us two penalties,”Peseiro said.

“The guy who injured Akpoguma also deserved a red card. No one spoke about that. The referee added four minutes additional time when Akpoguma spent around five minutes on the pitch when he was injured.

“I know we have enough quality to beat them. If we score 10 percent of the chances we created we will win the game.

“I have spoken with my players and will do more today. You cannot create chances without putting the ball into the net

“We need to play same way but it is important that we convert our chances.”

    Why is Etebo not in the team?He should be in this team because he’s active with his club and not injured.
    I’m surprised he wasn’t considered this time.His energy and experience was missed besides love the way he dovetailed with Iwobi against Sao Tome & Principe.
    I hope we win today,good-luck super eagles.

  • God bless Nigeria and Super Eagles
