Final: What you should know about the Super Eagles boss



On Sunday, February 11, Nigeria will take to the field to play Cotê d’Ivoire in the final of the TotalEnergies CAF Africa Cup of Nations Côte d’Ivoire 2023 at the Alassane Ouattara Stadium in Abidjan.


This will be Nigeria’s eighth final in the competition’s history, with three wins to their credit.


Portuguese trainer José Peseiro led the Super Eagles to their eighth final after a penalty shootout win over South Africa.


CafOnline.com throws more light on how the journey has been for Peseiro.




José Peseiro was appointed two years ago as the head coach of the Nigerian national team after they failed to qualify for the 2022 FIFA World Cup in Qatar.




The NFF maintained their faith in Peseiro when the country struggled to get results months into his appointment.


He did his duty even when the fans lost his trust.


The success story


The Portuguese built a solid Nigerian side, which is challenging to beat by blending young players with the experience in the setup.


One of the key things he did to improve the Nigeria squad was the introduction of Stanley Nwabili into the setup.


Two years later, Nigeria is in the finals with the best defensive unit, conceding just two goals.
