Peseiro stated during the post-match press conference in Abuja that the players and coaches were dissatisfied with Friday’s result and that recovering the top spot in Bissau is the goal for Monday.
“We were just unlucky and that don’t happen everyday in football .
“We won’t see repeat of such in Bissau. Players and coaches are not happy about the result.” He said.
“Of course, we created many opportunities but Guineans are lucky.
“Moses Simon, Victor Osimhen, Onuachu, Ndidi could not score when scoring chances were created.
“To say the truth, everyone who watched this match knew that our team deserved a win because we created many opportunities.
” Ordinarily, we could have scored 4 or 5 goals but it happen in football.
“We just lost one match. Any team can lose one match because if we play the way we play today, we can beat any team including Guinea.”
