Super Eagles head coach, Jose Peseiro says his side were deserving winners following Monday night’s victory against the Djurtus of Guinea-Bissau.
The West Africans defeated the Djurtus 1-0 at the September 24 Stadium, Bissau.
It was a sweet revenge for Peseiro’s, who suffered an embarrassing 1-0 defeat to Baciro Cande’s side last week Friday at the Moshood Abiola Stadium, Abuja.

Peseiro said the Super Eagles could have scored more goals in both games but for their profligacy in front of goal.
“We could have won 6-1 in Abuja and 5-0 here in Bissau today because we played better on Friday than today. But that’s football, some times you played better than your opponents but the result will show otherwise,”Peseiro in his post-match interview.
“We dominated the match more at home than today but we could not convert our scoring chances.”
The Super Eagles will travel away to Sierra Leone for their next match on Sunday, June 11, 2023.
