Super Eagles head coach, Jose Peseiro has reacted to the team’s 1-1 draw with Zimbabwe in a 2026 FIFA World Cup qualifier on Sunday.
Walter Musona scored for the hosts, before Kelechi Iheanacho equalized at Huye Stadium in Rwanda.
The result means Peseiro’s men have now failed to win their first two games in the World Cup qualifying series, having drawn 1-1 with Lesotho a few days ago.
Speaking at his post-match press conference after the game, Peseiro feels the long travels played a part in the result.
According to Peseiro, “It was a tough, difficult trip from Nigeria in the flight, many hours, the players didn’t rest enough for quick play at the same level.
He added, “First half, very bad, second half, much better.”
