Head coach of the Super Eagles, Jose Peseiro, has explained why he didn’t change his tactics against Ivory Coast in the 2023 Africa Cup of nations final.

William Troost-Ekong opened the scoring in the first half with a header, but the hosts fought back after the break with two goals to win the trophy.

He replied: “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.”
