Super Eagles head coach Jose Peseiro emphasizes the importance of humility as his team gears up for their Group A encounter with Guinea-Bissau at the Felix Houphouet Boigny Stadium on Monday.
Following a 1-0 victory over hosts Cote d’Ivoire on Thursday, the three-time champions enter the match as overwhelming favorites.
Despite Guinea-Bissau’s struggles, having lost their initial two matches against Cote d’Ivoire and Equatorial Guinea, Peseiro urges caution and respect for their opponents.
Peseiro during his media interaction on Sunday stressed the need for his players not to let the triumph against Cote d’Ivoire affect their focus.
Peseiro acknowledges the potential of Guinea-Bissau, emphasizing their skilled players and the unpredictable nature of the competition.
He advocates a game-by-game approach, urging his team to display better performance, showcase their quality and capacity, with the belief that maintaining this mindset will make them unbeatable.
Currently in the second position in Group A with four points from two games, the Super Eagles can secure a spot in the Round of 16 with a draw in their upcoming match.
