Peseiro rues Super Eagles failure to qualify for Qatar 2022


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.
