Peseiro Goes Tough On Players Ahead Of AFCON Quarterfinal Clash With Angola


Super Eagles Coach, Jose Peseiro has warned that any players who flout the camp rules would be expelled from the ongoing African Nations Cup (AFCON) in Cote D’Ivoire.

Reeling out camp rules to the players, the Portuguese tactician said that the Super Eagles stars must not be late to team meetings, must not pick telephone calls during meetings, they must obey team curfews with bed time being 11pm and must not entertain female visitors.

The players have also been completely cordoned off on the fourth floor of the Pullman Hotel in Abidjan with the team’s chief security officer on all-round survellience.

“Peseiro has gone tough on the players. He warned that he will not hestitate to expel any player who flouts camp rules as they stay on course to win the AFCON,” a source told SCORENigeria

“The man is just a game away from reaching the target the NFF set for him to get a new contract and as such he is not smiling or joking.”

On Friday, the Super Eagles will hope to reach the semifinal of the 2023 AFCON by flying past dark horses Angola.

In nine head-head meetings, Nigeria have won three and drawn five matches with the Palancas Negras, who have surprised at this AFCON with some big results while playing attractive attacking football.
