Use local coach – Nigerians urge NFF to sack Peseiro after Super Eagles draw with Zimbabwe

Fans of the Super Eagles of Nigeria have grown frustrated with Portuguese tactician Jose Peseiro after watching recent World Cup qualifiers.

A star-studded Super Eagles of Nigeria team could not muster all three points in two World Cup qualifiers against African minnows Lesotho and Zimbabwe

To put it in a better context, Nigeria only got two points (could have lost both games, actually) playing against teams ranked far below them in the FIFA ranking – Zimbabwe is ranked 123rd in the world, while Lesotho is a hundred-plus places below, occupying the 153rd position.

Nigeria drew 1-1 with Lesotho in the first game, while South Africa beat Benin 2-1 to top the group. In the second game against Zimbabwe, many expected the Super Eagles to come out all guns blazing, but they disappointed once more.

Following the laborious and tasteless showings in both games, Nigerian football fans have urged the Nigerian Football Federation to part ways with Jose Peseiro.
