Super Eagles head Coach, Jose Peseiro believes it’s important to attend the ongoing FIFA World Cup in Qatar, in order to learn the evolutionary trends of national teams.
Peseiro has never managed at the tournament, despite coaching Venezuela and Saudi Arabia.
Peseiro, 62, took up Nigeria’s coaching role in May 2022, replacing Austin Eguavoen who oversaw a disasterous World Cup qualifying play off against Ghana.
Since his appointment, he is yet to beat a great opposition, including losing 4-0 to Qatar 2022 World Cup finalists Portugal in Lisbon.
Peseiro however acknowledged that, it is good to observe and learn new coaching tricks in Qatar.
“I have been to the last five World Cups watching the games live until now. I am in Qatar with the support of the Nigeria Football Federation.
“I think it’s important to evaluate the evolutionary trends of national teams in this competition.
“It’s a bigger competition for national teams. I can’t compare the organisation of the national teams, some teams have more time to prepare than other teams.
“But if you speak about the quality of the players, matches. As the coach of a national team, the Super Eagles, I can say that there are many qualities. Any national team can bring together the best players.”
“ I arrived in Qatar on December 2 and I have been watching the games live, watching two matches. I watched Portugal vs Croatia and how Cameroon defeated Brazil. It is possible to watch the games because the stadiums are not far from each other, I will watch the quarter-finals, semi-finals, third place and the final,” Peseiro concluded.
