Video: Bissau stadium’s pitch is better than that of Abuja, says Peseiro




Nigeria’s coach, Jose Peseiro will probably wish the next home matches of the Super Eagles are taken away from Abuja as the pitch is believed to be bad.

In a video clip posted on news platform on the Super Eagles, the coach spoke on the turn around result that the Super Eagles obtained in Guinea Bissau on Monday after their dramatic home loss last Friday in Abuja.

The coach remarked that “on Friday, our team was much better than Guinea (Bissau). Today, (Monday) we created many scoring opportunities. Today, the pitch is much better than that of Abuja. Our team play offensive game and created  many opportunities. We should have beaten them 5-1 in the first match (if the pitch were good) and in the second one, 5-0 or even 6-0.  Guinea didn’t create much opportunities.  

“Our mistake today  (Monday) was finishing.. But that do happen in football. Am happy, not because of the result, but for the model we are are showing everybody… good passes, good ball possession 


“We want to be attack oriented and give qualifty football to the fans. The last coach left because he could not do that.

“We want to play beautiful football.  We were good in both matches, but not fantastic finishing

“We will improve. We had just five training sessions  Our philosophy is to attack and attack.”
