The Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) has made it clear that it doesn’t have any intentions to sack the Super Eagles coach Jose Peseiro.
Recall that Peseiro tutored the Super Eagles to a 4-0 loss to the Selecao of Portugal on Thursday night in Lisbon, Portugal’s capital.
Bruno Fernandes scored the first goal of the encounter inside 9 minute of the encounter before scoring the second gfrom the penalty spot.
Upon resumption, twice in the second half, Gonzalo Ramos and Joao Mario added more goals in the closing stages of the encounter to finish the thrashing of the Nigerian team.
Jose Peseiro has only been in charge of the Super Eagles for five months.
In the seven matches he has taken charge of, the three-time African champions have won just two and lost five.
The meek display from Peseiro’s team has led to rumblings for the Portuguese coach to be pushed closer to the exit door.
But a high-ranking NFF official told ESPN: “He has just started and we need to be patient with him.
“He has also won the two games that were important, that is the qualifiers for the Nations Cup. Friendlies are just friendlies, and we will judge him on the qualifiers.”
The Portuguese team is drawn in group H alongside Ghana, Uruguay and South Korea.
