Jose Peseiro calls on God after draw against Equatorial Guinea


The head coach of the Super Eagles of Nigeria, Jose Peseiro, left the Nigerians in shock at his post-match conference after the draw against Equatorial Guinea.

The Portuguese international was asked about how he felt about the result. He responded by saying that the result was dependent on God.

"God gives and God takes, hopefully, God gives us the match."

Nigeria dominated from the start but was caught on the counter in the 36th minute when José Machín set up Iban Salvador to put Equatorial Guinea ahead.

The Super Eagles came back into the immediately when Ademola Lookman’s deflected cross dropped kindly for Victor Osimhen who headed the ball into the net. Nigeria had their chance at the post through Moses Simon but was unable to get any more goals despite intense pressure.

Peseiro has not won his last 3 competitive games against Lesotho, Zimbabwe, and now Equatorial Guinea. Nigeria goes into the game with a point against Ivory Coast, they can't afford to lose against the host nation.
