2023 AFCON Qualifier: Peseiro shuts door on new players for Sao Tome clash

Super Eagles head coach, Jose Peseiro has hinted he will go with his regular stars for the 2023 Africa Cup of Nations qualifier against Sao Tome and Principe.

The three-time African champions earned a place in Cote d’Ivoire 2023 following a 3-2 victory against the Leone Stars of Sierra Leone on Sunday night.

There have been calls for Peseiro to invite new players for the dead rubber clash against Sao Tome and Principe in September.

The Portuguese, however, claimed inviting different sets of players will affect the team’s organisation.

“We have one national team and there is time that we can work to improve the team, if I change the team all the time, I will never be able to improve our organisation,” Peseiro said after the game against Sierra Leone.

“Against Sao Tome, of course, we have to create more dynamics and organisation. If I change, how can I improve the team for AFCON? However, the door of the Super Eagles is open for everybody,” he added.
