Super Eagles coach Jose Peseiro said the team needs to improve in every aspect, if they are to compete at the top level and win the Africa Cup of Nations. The Portuguese born coach submitted that there are players who can win the title for Nigeria and added that he was working towards having a formidable team but there has to be some organisation. “To do that, I’m trying to shape our players and join them in the right way to build a good model to play at a high level. If you want to reach the top in Africa, you need to create a top level. “For that, I try to see the players, see everybody and improve our organization, improve our facilities, improve our training, improve everything we can.”
He said the Eagles can compete with the best in Africa despite their shocked round of 16 exit at the 2021 tournament in Cameroon. “Of course, we know the power of the national teams who played in the World Cup, like Senegal, Cameroon, Morocco, who had a fantastic tournament. But we know the quality and capacity of the national teams that didn’t play in the World Cup, like Egypt, Algeria, and others. “I think I’ve convinced myself when I watch our national team. I know which players can play for us, and I have put it in my mind that we can win the next AFCON.”
