The last time the team was together was in June, and Peseiro is ready to put in the work ahead of the big friendly game on the 27th
Super Eagles coach Jose Peseiro has expressed enthusiasm ahead of the international friendly against the Desert Foxes of Algeria on September 27th.
The last time the Super Eagles gathered was in June, during the Africa Cup of Nations qualifiers against Sierra Leone and Sao Tome and Principe which ended 2-1 and 10-0 respectively.
Well, this time Peseiro and his lads would square off against Algeria in Oran on the 27th of September albeit a friendly encounter.
As of the last report, 22 players are already in camp, and the Portuguese tactician has already started work in earnest with the available players. Peseiro took to twitter to share his enthusiasm over the job ahead.
“It feels great to be back with the team! Look forward to a week of hard work and training, before the friendly match against Algeria. Let’s go!

Unfortunately for Nigeria and Algeria, they failed to qualify for the 2022 Qatar World Cup. Nonetheless, they would look to give a good performance when they square off.
