Super Eagles head coach Jose Peseiro has commended his players for their performance in Thursday night’s 2-1 win against Leone Stars of Sierra Leone, reports Completesports.com.
The West Africans missed an early chance through Victor Osimhen.
Peseiro’s charges however went behind in the 11th minute, with Jonathan Morsay nodding home Musa Kamara’s pinpoint cross.
The Super Eagles rallied back with Alex Iwobi equalising five minutes later and Victor Osimhen netting the winning goal four minutes before the break.
“We were better than Sierra Leone in this game, we deserve to win. We changed the setup in the second half, I think it was only the last 10 minutes our opponent had some good moments,” Peseiro told reporters after the game.
“We created a lot of scoring chances, we could have won with a bigger margin, but the team needs more time and we must work.”
The Super Eagles will travel to Agadir, Morocco for their next game in the qualifiers against Sao Tome and Principe next week Monday.
