AFCON 2023: Why Super Eagles lost to Guinea in friendly – Peseiro

Super Eagles head coach Jose Peseiro has said he tried new formations in his side’s friendly defeat to Guinea on Monday.

Peseiro’s side fell to a 2-0 defeat in the encounter played at Banis Yas Stadium, Abu Dhabi.

Aguibou Camara and Facinet Conte scored in each half for the Syli Stars.

The Portuguese claimed the change in formation affected his team’s performance.

“We tested a new system today, 3-4-3. We did a very good first half, we were losing 1-0 then, but we deserved more,” he told the NFF TV.

“We lost a penalty and missed two, three clear chances.

“We played very well and put the other team on the back foot, but we let in a goal through a mistake. But it’s better to do the mistakes now than later.”
