Morocco is a big team but playing defensive in the World Cup, that is different.

Peseiro also revealed the sides that impress him at the ongoing 2022 World Cup.

“For Argentina, Netherlands and Croatia they try to be more effective and also offensive but I like Brazil, Portugal, France and England because of their offensive play.” He said.

Peseiro who is currently in Qatar is seven months into his role as the Head coach of the three time African Champions.

And with 2022 gradually whining down, the Portuguese expressed gratitude to Nigerian fans, NFF and the media for their support, promising a much improved Super Eagles in 2023.
