Super Eagles head coach Jose Peseiro is determined to build a formidable squad despite criticisms trailing the team’s recent performance.
The Super Eagles have struggled under Peseiro’s tutelage, and last Friday’s 1-0 home defeat to Guinea-Bisssu had seen many calls for his sack.
The three-time African champions redeemed their image by avenging the shocking defeat by scrapping past the Djurtus 1-0 on Monday night in Bissau.
The Eagles need just one point from the remaining two games in the 2023 Africa Cup of Nations qualifiers to seal a place in Cote d’Ivoire.
Peseiro remains undaunted by the task ahead and is confident he will get things right at the end of the day.
“First, we lost even though we had created what was necessary to win, then we won while maintaining the same level. However, what has been fundamental to our success is our trust in our processes, in each other, and in our identity,” Peseiro wrote on his Facebook page.
“On the field, the players have shown their commitment to winning for Nigeria and making Nigerians proud.
“The work does not end here. We remain determined to continue the hard work and bring glory to our team. With each game, we are more motivated to achieve our goals. The journey ahead may be long and challenging, but we are ready to face any obstacle that comes our way.”
