Super Eagles head coach Jose Peseiro will line out the squad on Thursday evening for his first competitive game in charge as the Nigerian team go toe to toe with Sierra Leone in a 2023 Africa Cup of Nations qualifying match in Abuja, Megasportsarena.com reports.
The Portuguese looks forward to a successful start to his Nigerian career and hopes a new story is about to be written with him at the helm.
“We are about to begin an important journey at AFCON with motivation and a sense of pride. All the history and greatness of the nation serve as inspiration, to further strengthen the commitment to our great ambition. Together, we will be closer to achieving success!”
Nigerians expect the Eagles to compensate them for the painful World Cup miss by beating the Leone Stars at the MKO Abiola Stadium as they start their journey to the 2023 AFCON in Côte d’Ivoire.
