Super Eagles head coach, Jose Peseiro, emphasized the importance of humility and concentration as he addressed the upcoming challenge against Angola. Peseiro’s squad has showcased their prowess by defeating formidable opponents like Cote d’Ivoire and Cameroon in the ongoing 2023 Africa Cup of Nations, securing a spot in the quarter-finals.
Angola, demonstrating their strength with a convincing 3-0 win over Namibia, poses a considerable threat in the tournament. Peseiro cautioned his players to approach the match against the Palancas Negras with the utmost seriousness.
Speaking to the media at the Felix Houphouet Boigny Stadium, the Portuguese coach stated, “We will now shift our focus to our next encounter against Angola, a team that is having an excellent tournament. It’s crucial for us to take this opponent seriously. Therefore, we will continue to prioritize early rest and a balanced diet (laughs). On a serious note, every team at this stage possesses the capability to clinch the tournament.”
