Super Eagles head coach, Jose Peseiro, has revealed his team’s goal as they prepare to face the star-studded Portugal side that will be led by Manchester United star, Cristiano Ronaldo.
In an interview with a Lisbon-based radio station in Portugal, Peseiro said the Eagles will attempt to dominate possession of the game and also win the encounter.
The three-time African champions have failed to win in any of their last 11 friendlies but will be hoping to stop the Euro 2016 champions at the Estadio Jose Alvalade in Lisbon.
Speaking ahead of the game, the 62-year-old tactician said; “If we can’t win, let’s draw. If we can’t draw, let’s not lose by too many. That’s the goal,” the Portuguese was quoted as saying by tsf.
“The games we want to play against the best teams. Otherwise, I could only play behind. I don’t know if Portugal will allow us and if we are going to be able to do what we want, but we want to play the game across the field and also have the ball because we have players with the quality and capacity for that.”
