NFF funds Peseiro’s trip to understudy at the World Cup

The Nigeria Football Federation sponsored the trip of Super Eagles boss Jose Peseiro to attend the FIFA World Cup in Qatar as a refresher course.

Peseiro is currently in Qatar to attend matches from the round of 16 and will remain there for the finals.

The 62 year-old’s trip was facilitated by the Nigeria Football Federation, and he was employed after the failure of  the Super Eagles to qualify for the World Cup.


“The goal is to see, analyse, observe, identify the best practices of the various teams in the competition, to draw conclusions about what the teams do in the game, whether in the different ways of working, of training, (and) also with special attention to the African teams of course.


“He has been in Qatar since December 2 and will stay until the day after the final.

“Although the decision to go to work during the World Cup, the travel, accommodation and most of the tickets, were taken care of by Mister Peseiro, the tickets for the semi-finals, third and fourth place and the final was made possible by the NFF.

Since his appointment in May, Peseiro has two wins over Sierra Leone and Sao Tome and Principe in the Africa Cup of Nations qualifiers, and lost to Mexico, Ecuador, Algeria and Portugal in international friendlies.

    Clueless Nff. So you can’t sponsor your very own Nigerian coaches but you choose to send a foreigner that will leave your job tomorrow and run to another country
