Jose Peseiro reveals why Portugal beat Nigeria 4-0. Jose Peseiro, the head coach of Nigeria, said that Portugal beat the Super Eagles 4-0 yesterday night with their strongest players.
Nigeria lost their sixth consecutive friendly game because they were no match for the Euro 2016 champions.
Bruno Fernandes of Manchester United scored for the home team after seven minutes and extended the lead from the penalty spot in the 35th.
Gonçalo Ramos quickly scored the third goal in the 83rd minute, and Joo Mário completed the scoring after Emmanuel Dennis missed a fantastic opportunity to change the course of the game from the penalty spot.
“We need to significantly improve. The first half fell short of our expectations; the second half, however, was much better, Peseiro told A Bola.
“Portugal was better, they’re better, they have a strong lineup, but the scoreline is heavy and exaggerated since we had a chance to make it 2-1 and instead lost to Portugal 0-3 and 0-4. Four goals, some of them the way they were, cannot be conceded.
