Jose Peseiro, the head coach of the Super Eagles, has said that his team is better than the Black Stars. The Portuguese coach said this while reflecting on the team’s failure to qualify for the FIFA World Cup of 2022.
KemiFilani recalls that the Ghanaian Black Stars, a resolute foe, beat the three-time African champions to a World Cup ticket in March.
After the two-legged match ended in a 1-1 draw, Peseiro’s team was denied the benefit of the away-goal rule.
Both teams fought to a 1-1 draw in the reverse match, while the first leg in Cape Coast ended in a barren tie.
Peseiro insisted that the Super Eagles should compete in Qatar 2022 because they are superior to the Black Stars.
“I have a team with players who play in England, Italy, France, Spain, but unfortunately they didn’t beat Ghana to go to the World Cup,” Peseiro said in an interview.
“But I think it was an accident, I think Nigeria are better than Ghana,” he said.
In November, Qatar will host the international soccer extravaganza.
