2026: World Cup Qualifiers: Nigerians Call For Sack Of Super Eagles Manager, Paseiro


Nigerians have expressed their discontent on social media following the Super Eagles‘ disappointing 1-1 draw against Zimbabwe, marking their second consecutive draw in the 2026 FIFA World Cup qualifying campaign.

Leicester City’s Kelechi Iheanacho saved Nigeria’s blushes in Butare after he drew level with a fine curler from inside the box.

The Jose Peseiro-led side, however, could not get a winner despite all efforts as the Zimbabweans ensured that there was no taste of victory for the Eagles.

The draw meant the Super Eagles are still without a win in their qualifying campaign for the 2026 World Cup, as they have picked up only two points from a possible six.

For Nigerians on social media, this outcome adds to the disappointment, and many are advocating for the dismissal of Peseiro.

My 2 cents!

Terrible situation our football administrators got us in’

@preciousekeke: “If pesiero survives a sack letter after this dismal outing, then the NFF should tell us what he has against them.”

@isibor266: “The entire team and coaching crew should be disbanded. This is a shame and a waste of scarce resources.”

@yoboydonchichi: “You can never do anything again. Please drop this slogan after another disgraceful result against Zimbabwe. With a failure like Jose Peseiro as a coach, Nigeria can never achieve anything in football.”

@gagnatbiz: “We are not doing it again o.. We want a better performance with a win at the end. Not all this draw and “let’s do it again”.

Wake up!!!”
