Peseiro: Super Eagles 'most talented' team ever coached in my career

Jose Peseiro, the Super Eagles coach, has admitted that the squad’s quality is giving him a selection issue, describing them as the ‘most talented’ team he has ever managed.

Following a 2-1 win over Sierra Leone and a 10-0 thumping of Sao Tome & Principe in the first two matches of the 2023 Africa Cup of Nations qualifiers, Peseiro made the assertion.

Since taking over the reins last month, the Portuguese tactician has overseen four matches, the first two of which Nigeria lost 2-1 to Mexico before losing 1-0 to Ecuador in friendly matches in the United States.

Peseiro, who made several changes to the team that lost in America ahead of the Afcon qualifiers, believes that the talents at his disposal make attacking football easier.

“Our style is attack because of the kind of players we have in the team,” Peseiro told

He went on: “I see them very well now in training and they are the most talented I have worked with in my career and I am not joking. It is hard for me to pick the best selection for games.”

Nigeria lead Group A with six points followed by Guinea Bissau on four while Sierra Leone have one from their draw with the latter.

The Super Eagles’ next assignment is in September against Guinea Bissau whom they will play home and away and Peseiro knows tougher tests will come.

“We expect the next few games to be tougher but we are confident in ourselves. The Ideas will make the players love to play for the team,” said the former Venezuela coach.
