Peseiro Explains Why Super Eagles Lost To Tunisia In AFCON Round Of 16

The newly appointed coach of the senior national team of Nigeria Jose Peseiro has explained what he thought made the senior national team of Nigeria lost their round of 16 game at the Africa Cup of Nations 0-1 to Tunisia.

Peseiro speaking at the media conference ahead of today’s AFCON 2023 qualifiers against Sierra Leone said the Nigerian team was the better them at the AFCON but lost due to a situation that was out of their hands.

He said the red card to Alex Iwobi was not deserved and it played a role in the final outcome of the game. He said even with one man down , the Nigerian team still played better than Tunisia. Simply put he felt poor officiating was partly the reason why the team lost.

“In the last AFCON I think our team was the best there but bad luck in that moment. That crazy red card. The VAR discovered in this moment made a red card for nothing because even against Tunisia”, he said.

”The team was better than Tunisia even with ten men they created enough opportunity to score and win the match. Of course you the people, the fans sometimes you can not see that because of the emotion close your eyes but for me I saw in that moment. I don’t speak about the match against Ghana but against Tunisia”, he stated.
