Why will I be sacked?- Peseiro quizzes after G’Bissau defeat

As Super Eagles lose four straight games

Super Eagles head coach Jose Peseiro has fired back after he was asked if he feared being sacked after Nigeria’s shocking 1-0 defeat to Guinea-Bissau in Abuja on Friday.

Mama Samba Baldeā€™s 29th-minute goal gave Guinea-Bissau the shocking 1-0 win that pushes them to the top of the qualifying group with 7 points.

While Nigeria dropped to second place on the log, the defeat was also Super Eagles’ fourth straight loss, but Jose Peseiro who is allegedly being owed $700,000 by NFF is not expecting to be sacked by his employers.

“Losing a game in the qualification games don’t warrant being sacked.” He told journalists during the presser on Friday.

“Why will I be sacked? We are on good position to play in the next African Nations Cup, so, should a coach who will lead the team to victory be sacked? No, you don’t do that.

“Of course today, we created many opportunities but Guineans are lucky. Moses Simon, Victor Osimhen, Onuachu, Ndidi could not score when scoring chances were created. The players and coach are not happy about the result.

“To say the truth, everyone who watched this match today knows that our team deserved a win because we created many opportunities. Ordinarily, we could have scored 4 or 5 goals but it happen in football

“We just lost one match. Any team can lose one match because if we play the way we played today, we can beat any team including Guinea.”

After defeats against Algeria, Costa Rica, Portuga, and Guinea-Bissau, it could be five in a row should Nigeria lose in their second leg clash next Monday at the Estadio 24 de Setembro in Bissau.
