Peseiro: Nigeria missed many chances

“I gave my opinion after the first match. I watched the video again yesterday and our team missed a lot of chances. The strikers missed a lot of chances," Peseiro commented.
”The performance was not bad but we need to score goals. That’s the most important thing. It is not normal when a team like us missed too many chances like we did on Friday.''

The Super Eagles will need to win the encounter to hold hopes of qualifying for the main AFCON competition.
