Jose Peseiro, Super Eagles Head Coach, says his main objective is to win the next African Cup of Nations for Nigeria.
Peseiro who arrived the job seven months has oversaw two wins in the 2024 African Cup of Nations qualifiers, but remain without a win in four international friendly matches.
“The objective is to win the next AFCON and to reach the objective we have objectives. We have been working on observation, player evaluation and team organisation.” He said in an interview with the NFF TV.
Speaking on the poor run of results in the friendly, including 4-0 defeat to his native country Portugal, Peseiro said the aim is to test players, and formations that suit the team better.
The former Venezuela manager however maintained, the team has to learn from each result.
“We had two qualifiers which ended 2-1 and 10-0. But the friendly games against Mexico, Ecuador, Algeria and Portugal we tried to check our players, we tried to check our ideas, our model to see if we can play this way or not.
“Against Portugal we tried to face them, though we lost 4-0 but we tried to face them and in the first half I didn’t like what I saw because we didn’t control the game as we want. But in the second half we had more possession than Portugal and almost scored from the penalty and also through Samuel (Chukwueze).
“We can learn from these games and when I arrive I told my players that if they want to win the AFCON and be among the best teams in Africa you need to play like a big team.” He concluded.
