Jose Peseiro, the Super Eagles’ head coach, believes that the match against Sao Tome and Principe will bring out the best in his team as they strive to finish first in the league.

Sao Tomé and Principe will today welcome the Super Eagles to the Grand Stade Agadir in one of the day’s two matches of the 2023 Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON) Group A qualification.

In a statement by Ademola Olajire, Director of Communications at the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) on Sunday, Peseiro was quoted as saying that winning the game and topping the table was the team’s top priority.

“We want to be the team at the top of the table. So we must fight hard against the opponents. For every match, we must commit ourselves fully to winning it.
