Peseiro Thumbs Up Nigeria’s AFCON Performance

Jose Peseiro has shared his thoughts on Nigeria’s performance at the 2021 Africa Cup of Nations, reports Completesports.com.

The three-time champions made a promising start to the competition winning all three group games against Egypt, Sudan and Guinea-Bissau.

The West Africans however suffered a shocking 1-0 defeat to the Carthage Eagles of Tunisia in the second round.

Peseiro was expected to take charge of the Super Eagles for the 2022 FIFA World Cup playoffs against the Black Stars of Ghana after he was announced new substantive head of the team on the eve of the AFCON.

It remain uncertain if he will be on the bench against the Black Stars following the clamour for interim manager Augustine Eguavoen to get the job on a full -time basis.

That has however not discourage Peseiro from sharing his thoughts on the team’s performance in Cameroon.

“The Africa Cup of Nations is a very strong competition between strong teams, including Nigeria, who were the best in the group stage, but after all, the four strongest teams throughout the tournament have reached the semi-finals,” the 61-year-old told Kingfut.

“Egypt didn’t do well against Nigeria, but after that, they showed their true abilities, their players gave a great performance against Morocco, they have what it takes to win the tournament.”

    Miserable, pitiable, laughable report.

    What da heck is the Peseiro saying? If he is scared of insecurity situation in Nigeria he should air his disaffection than keeping a country of 300m ppl in the dark. GFA of Ghana just appointed a local coach Otto Addo as its substantive coach.

  • Anbu Lemur 2 years ago

    Bro, we can’t blame Jose Peseiro. A country where the state governors and other leaders are afraid of moving around, is worth being scared of. Recently, the United States sent a cable warning its nationals of the prevalent kidnapping and ritual killings.

  • I’m sure he saw some of the clips of the SE training in Garoua. https://youtu.be/Llb9debt-2o?t=11

    The clamor for our own coach Austin Eguavoen to continue gained much traction since he gave the national team a new face, everyone is now pleased with the performance of the S.E. It would be out of place to be thinking of another coach at this time. Only a very few foolish and idiotic mindsets threaded into insanity would look into that direction considering the distraction it’s going to cause the players most especially. That’s not saying we aren’t recognising the fact that Peseiro has acknowledged the improvement brought by coach Austin Egu. Whoever knows Peseiro should tell him to stay put in where ever he is. We, the S.E fans don’t want him because he has a poor CV.

    Bros, you are right on point. In fact, Gernot Rohr has a better CV than Jose. Let’s us ask NFF to get us Rohr after the World cup.

  • Chima E Samuels 2 years ago

    This one is another white hater in the wait, like Rohr who’s been talking plenty after he left us and this one is here using proverbs to tell you that Nigeria is not in the top 4. Excuse in advance Pinnick don’t try and give this Job to this man else Hmmm!

  • Cherry 2 years ago

    NFF can go and look for another coach if they don’t believe in domestic engagement, but not this certificate less and jobless portuguese. It’s insulting.

  • Olujimi Morgan 2 years ago

    @Chima, you’re right to note that Peseiro stated that Nigeria isn’t in the strongest 4 teams at Afcon. He downgraded a great performance against Egypt by stating they had an off day! So, how come Nigeria could not have had an off day against Tunisia?

    Please this negative and biased thinker must never near Nigeria and our team. I trust the NFF will not displease Nigerians by bringing an indifferent coach with a poor track record to manage our team. Obviously, he prefers the Arabs to the Africans.

    Away with him!!!

    • Fepili loyri 2 years ago

      You have time. Peseiro and the failure of comprehension, hmm. Even when Nigerians are electing a president they are mentally mediocres, depressing the must never have side with all sorts of conforming reasons why it can never happen. They will tell us merit, competency and those other indifferences, all na lie. It would’ve been a click on a key, the rest is not history.

    This guy Peseiro already has the Nigerian mentality of praising mediocrity

  • Cirbor 2 years ago

    Come o, we have only 44 days to the 1st leg of the playoffs.

  • Fepili loyri 2 years ago

    44 days and then? You have turned poor Peseiro to a football analyst and what again? So u want nff to start shopping for a new coach at this late hour? He rubbed millions.
