Super Eagles must respect Guinea-Bissau — Peseiro

Super Eagles coach Jose Peseiro admits his players must learn from their first-leg defeat and take their chances, when they file out once again against Guinea-Bissau in their Africa Cup of Nations qualifiers match later today.

Peseiro’s side fell 1-0 at home to the Djurtus at the Moshood Abiola’s Stadium, despite dominating the game.

The Super Eagles missed plenty scoring chances before and after Mame Baldé’s goal for the visitors.

In his pre-match presser ahead of the second leg, the Portuguese stated that his team must put chances away to get a result in Bissau.

“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 said during his interaction with the media.

” 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.

“We moved the ball well, played offensively too and shoot the ball well. I think it is better to create opportunities than not.

“I want my team to do the same but avoid mistakes. We made too many mistakes in the first game. We must avoid doing same in the second game.

“It’s important for us to be clinical in front of goal, to finish well when we have the chances,” Peseiro said.

Nigeria is currently second on the log, trailing Guinea-Bissau by a point and leading third place Sierra Leone by a point.

Peseiro however also stated that his team must respect their opponents.

“We need to respect all the teams. We have to beat Guinea-Bissau, Our responsibility is to defend our country, our flag, We have to beat Guinea-Bissau,”he added.

“We are one of the best teams in Africa. Guinea-Bissau are at the moment in first position but we want to beat them and regain our position.

“If we are able to convert our chances, it will be a different match, ” He concluded.
