New Super Eagles coach, Jose Peseiro while spesking to the press after the loss to Mexico said he was happy with the team’s performance and he expects better attacking play in subsequent matches.
Peseiro told members of the press that his side will play a very attacking style, mounting pressure on opponents and eye catching football.
“My philosophy as a coach is to play attacking football,” he explained.
“I love my team to score and pressure the opponent, this is the best way to unsettle your opponent and win games.
“That is how we played in the second half against Mexico.
“And we will work more ahead of the Ecuador game.”
The 62-year-old believes that William Troost-Ekong should not be blamed for the team’s loss because he scored an own goal.
“I will not blame Ekong or any player for the loss,” he told the press.
“I take the responsibility of whatever happened to the team as the coach.
“Because Ekong scored one goal does not mean he is a bad player, he did well for the team. Every player in the world makes mistakes and that is not the end. He will come back stronger.
“Every time people want players who committed error to be singled out for a loss, it is not like that for me. It’s a team game and errors can happen to any player.”
The Super Eagles captain on the night scored an owngoal to restore Mexico lead just 2 minutes after Dessers equalized for Nigeria.
