Head coach of the Super Eagles, Jose Peseiro has defended his tactics against Ivory Coast in the 2023 Africa Cup of nations final.
The Portuguese was heavily criticized for how he set up his team for the championship match.
Peseiro opted for his favoured 3-4-3 formation that has made his side difficult to beat in the tournament for the final.
The Super Eagles, however, laboured to produce their best, and we’re second best all through the game.
After the game, Peseiro defended the tactics , saying:
“When you have a system that you have been using and it has been working, you really don’t want to change it.
“It is true that I kept to this strategy until we were 2-1 down and then I decided to change it.
“We conceded goals from some defensive errors and they had a drop in level, against the Ivorians.” He said.
