Poor results: Stakeholders demand Peseiro’s sacking over shaky W’Cup qualifiers
Football stakeholders have called for the immediate sack of Nigeria’s Super Eagles coach Jose Peseiro, following the team’s second consecutive draw in the FIFA 2026 World Cup qualifier.
The News Agency of Nigeria reports that the Super Eagles recorded a second consecutive draw on Sunday after struggling to hold the Warriors of Zimbabwe to a 1-1 draw in Rwanda.
The crucial match day 2 Group C encounter of their 10-match qualification series for the 2026 FIFA World Cup was played at the Huye Stadium in Butare.
Nigeria had also laboured to a 1-1 draw against the Crocodiles of Lesotho on home soil on Day 1 at the Godswill Akpabio International Stadium in Uyo on Thursday.
Meanwhile, South Africa’s 2-1 defeat of Benin Republic’s Cheetahs on Saturday means the Bafana Bafana are top of Group C, even before they take on Rwanda in a Day 2 encounter on Tuesday.
Some football stakeholders, who spoke to NAN on Monday in Abuja, said the poor performances recorded by the Super Eagles were unacceptable.
They argued that Peseiro was not the kind of coach for the Super Eagles, adding that it was high time he was relieved of his duties.Punch
