AFCON 2023: Super Eagles must respect Guinea-Bissau – Peseiro


Super Eagles head coach Jose Peseiro has warned his players to keep their feet on the ground despite the victory against Cote d’Ivoire.

Peseiro’s charges recorded a 1-0 victory against the hosts on Thursday.

The attention is now on the side’s last Group A fixture with Guinea-Bissau.

A point from the game will be enough for the three-time champions to claim a place in the Round of 16.

Peseiro said it is important for the Super Eagles to stay humble going into the game.

“We beat Cote d’Ivoire, it’s good for us, our confidence and what we want to achieve in this competition,” Peseiro said during his interaction with the media on Sunday.

“It also improves our confidence, but we also need to show more commitment. We have to respect the opponent.

“Guinea-Bissau have good players, they can beat any team. We have so many shocking results in this competition already.”

Monday’s encounter is slated for Felix Houphouet Boigny Stadium, Abidjan.
