Super Eagles head coach, Jose Peseiro was disappointed with the outcome of his side’s friendly against Portugal on Thursday night, reports PNO Sports.

The West Africans were thrashed 4-0 by their hosts at the Jose Estadio Jose Alvalade, Lisbon.

Peseiro’s side put up a shambolic display in the game and also missed a penalty game.

The Super Eagles have now lost four games in six outings under the Portuguese.

It was their heaviest defeat in recent times.

A disappointed Peseiro admitted that his team struggled to get going in the game.

“We have to improve and improve a lot. It was a first half below what we expected, the second was much better,” he said after the game.

“Portugal was better, they are superior, they have a great selection, but the scoreline is heavy and exaggerated because we could have made it 2-1 and then we suffered 0-3 and 0-4.

“We cannot concede four goals and some of them the way they were.

“It was a great emotion to be in this stadium where I spent great moments, facing Portugal, listening to the anthem… I am sad about the result, but being here and facing Portugal was a pleasure.”
