Jose Peseiro points out exactly what pleases him about Super Eagles’ record win over Sao Tome and Principe.

Head coach Jose Peseiro of the Super Eagles was overjoyed after Monday’s 10-0 victory over Sao Tome and Principe, Nigeria’s largest-ever win in international football.

Nigeria beat Sierra Leone 2-1 on Friday in Abuja, with goals from Victor Osimhen and Alex Iwobi. The Leone Stars had taken the lead early in the match.

On Monday, however, the 2013 African champions turned on the style inside an empty Stade d’Agadir in Morocco, scoring ten unanswered goals against the Falcons and True Parrots. Osimhen was the best of the bunch.

This is the worst loss in Sao Tome and Principe’s history and the most lopsided victory in Nigeria’s history.

Peseiro is happy with his team’s three points in the race to qualify for the 2023 Africa Cup of Nations, more so than the impressive scoreline.

Substitutes Ahmed Musa and Umar Sadiq each contributed to a goal, and the game’s tempo didn’t change despite using five subs in the second half. Simultaneously, Emmanuel Dennis scored a late-game penalty expertly converted by the winner.

They were just as impressive to Peseiro as the starters.

Regarding the 10-0 victory: It’s good, according to Peseiro, who was speaking to ESPN.

Three points are more valuable to us, so we should aim for that. Since we didn’t spend much time together in practice, I’d like to work on enhancing our team’s efficiency on the field.

This match was good because they tried to mimic our strategy, aesthetic, and overall concept.

As a result of the win, Nigeria maintains its position as Group A’s top team with six points and a favorable goal differential.


At Freetown, Sierra Leone earned their first point of the qualifying round by holding Guinea-Bissau to a 2-2 draw.

However, Guinea-Bissau is second in the group with four points after beating Sao Tome and Principe 5-1 on day one of the competition to take over the lead from the Super Eagles.
