AFCON 2023 qualifier: Peseiro reacts to Super Eagles 3-2 win over Sierra Leone

The head coach of the Super Eagles, Jose Peseiro, has said he deserved to beat Sierra Leone in their 2023 Africa Cup of Nations qualifier on Sunday.

A brace from Victor Osimhen and a late goal by Kelechi Iheanacho confirmed Nigeria’s spot at the tournament which kicks off in January.

The three-time African champions left Monrovia, Liberia with a 3-2 win.

”Very hard match, my players never gave up, they fought till the final whistle; in the first half we created up to eight opportunities but only scored two goals.

“We deserved to win but I think it was a difficult and very good match but our team is the best in the group. We did a fantastic job against a good team. I’m happy with my players, congratulations to them,” Peseiro said after the game.
