Super Eagles head coach, Jose Peseiro, has reflected on the team’s failure to qualify for the 2022 FIFA World Cup.
The three-time African champions were pipped to the World Cup ticket by perennial rivals, the Black Stars of Ghana in March.
Peseiro’s side lost out on away-goal rule after the two-legged tie ended in a 1-1 draw.
The first leg in Cape Coast ended in a barren draw, while both teams battled to a 1-1 draw in the reverse fixture.
Peseiro insisted that the Super Eagles are better than the Black Stars and ought to be one at Qatar 2022.
“I have a team with players who play in England, Italy, France, Spain, but unfortunately they didn’t beat Ghana to go to the World Cup,” Peseiro said in an interview.
“But I think it was an accident, I think Nigeria are better than Ghana,” he said.
The global soccer fiesta will be staged in Qatar in November.
