AFCON AFCON 2023: Peseiro Unhappy With Equatorial Guinea Result

Head coach of the Super Eagles, Jose Peseiro, said that his team should have received more than a point from their match against Equatorial Guinea.

The three-time African champions were disappointed with how they played out of position.

Victor Osimhen, a forward for Napoli, saved a tie for the Super Eagles, negating Ivan Salvador’s opening goal.

Peseiro’s had several opportunities to win the match, particularly in the second half, but they were not taken.

The Portuguese player, while disappointed with the outcome, acknowledged that his team’s lacklustre shooting prevented them from winning the match.

“I’m not happy with the result. I’m sad, my players are sad.

We are all sad because we deserve to beat our opponent,” Peseiro said during his interaction with the media.

“It’s normal to miss chances in football, I hope next time, we create less chances and score more goals.

“We played well and pushed our opponent back. I just hope we can maintain this same attitude in our subsequent games.

“Today, the result was not good for us, but we played really well.

“If we play like this in subsequent games, then it will be difficult for any team to beat us.”

The Super Eagles will take on hosts Cote d’Ivoire in their next game on Thursday.
