Super Eagles coach José Santos Peseiro, has said the team deserved to defeat Sierra Leone in their 2023 Africa Cup of Nations qualifier played on Sunday.

The three-time African champions departed Monrovia, Liberia with a 3-2 win over Sierra Leone.

Speaking after the match, Peseiro said, “Very hard match, my players never gave up, they fought till the final whistle. In the first half, we created up to eight opportunities but only scored two goals.

“We deserved to win but I think it was a difficult and very good match but our team is the best in the group. We did a fantastic job against a good team. I’m happy with my players, congratulations to them.”
