Despite having a player sent off, Mozambique still manage to pull a goal back to make it 3-2.

Mozambique scores a goal to bring the score back to 3-2 despite having a player sent off.

The Eagles were coming off a 2-2 tie with Saudi Arabia on Friday when they played on Monday.

After the game, Peseiro questioned his players’ focus, passing, and ability to capitalise on their scoring opportunities.

Peseiro remarked on NFF TV, “First of all, I’m thrilled because the Super Eagles finally won a game after 15 friendlies, it’s good.

“Looking at the game especially the second half I didn’t like the performance, I expected more concentration. Our team is better than Mozambique, we needed to concentrate on finishing, good passing.

“My players felt at 3-1 and against 10 everything is done, I didn’t like that. There were many opportunities, we saw players go one on one win the keeper and didn’t score so I’m not happy.

“I prefer the match against Saudi Arabia because they put in much concentration but today’s game I didn’t like it.

“My players had the chance to score up to eight goals because they created many opportunities. There was no good crosses, no good finishing, nothing came out of our corner kicks.

“I’m happy because we won but my players need to understand that I’m not happy.“

In November, Peseiro and his athletes will return to action for the 2026 FIFA World Cup qualifying matches against Lesotho and Zimbabwe.
