Super Eagles coach Jose Peseiro attributed the team’s performance against the Warriors of Zimbabwe on Sunday to the adverse effects of extensive travel.
The team, led by Peseiro, couldn’t secure a victory in Butare, resulting in a 1-1 draw with goals from Walter Musona and Kelechi Iheanacho at Huye Stadium in Rwanda. This outcome adds to the disappointment of their recent 1-1 draw against Lesotho in Uyo, putting Nigeria’s chances of topping the group in doubt.
Peseiro highlighted in the post-match press conference that the decline in his team’s performance was a consequence of the prolonged travel time.
He said, “It was a tough, difficult trip from Nigeria in the flight, many hours, the players didn’t rest enough for quick play at the same level.”
He added, “First half, very bad, second half, much better.”
