Super Eagles gave everything but we missed many goals – Score Nigeria

Super Eagles coach Jose Peseiro has lamented the shock home loss suffered at the hands of Guinea Bissau in a 2023 AFCON Group A qualifier.

Guinea Bissau, who are ranked a lowly 118th in the world by FIFA, recorded a famous 1-0 win against the Super Eagles Friday to go top of Group A of 2023 AFCON qualifiers.

Peseiro blamed bad luck for his fifth loss in charge of Nigeria.

“We missed many goals. We could have been here for another one hour and not score. Sometimes it happens in football,” the disappointed Portuguese coach lamented.

“I am not happy of course, I am sad, like my team, but they did the maximum.

“If you play like you played today (Friday), you can beat any team, not only Guinea Bissau.”

Peseiro also questioned the officiating, saying the Eagles had at least two penalty appeals overlooked, while the Egyptian referee did not give enough additional time despite lengthy stoppages during the game.

Both teams will clash again Monday at the Estadio 24 de Setembro in Bissau in continuation of the qualifying series.

The Wild Dogs of Guinea Bissau are now top of the qualifying group with seven points from three matches, while Nigeria dropped to second place on six points.

Sierra Leone are third on two points, while Sao Tome and Principe are bottom with a point.

The top two teams will qualify for the 2023 Africa Cup, which will be hosted by Cote d’Ivoire in January 2024.
