Jose Peseiro might be less than 4 months into his reign as the Super Eagles Coach, but he has already broken and set a new Nigerian football record with the Super Eagles. Nigeria took on Sao Tome Principe in today’s AFCON qualifiers game and Jose Peseiro named his best starting lineup. The likes of Victor Osimhen, Etebo, Ademola Lookman and Moses Simon all started the game against Sao Tome Principe.
In the first half, Nigeria scored 3 goals, with Victor Osimhen, Moses Simon and Moffi getting the 3 goals. In the second half, the Super Eagles ran riot, scoring 7 goals past a helpless Sao Tome Principe side. Victor Osimhen ended the game with a game-high 4 Goals, one of the most by a Nigerian player in a single game. It ended 10-0.
The 10-0 scoreline today was the most Nigeria has ever recorded in an official football game. That means that Jose Peseiro has become the coach with the highest ever win in Nigerian football history. What a record for the Super Eagles Coach. He started slowly but now he’s finding his feet with the National team.
