Super Eagles Must Beat Zimbabwe On Sunday, Peseiro Declares


In the aftermath of a disappointing 1-1 home draw against Lesotho, Super Eagles head coach Jose Peseiro has expressed determination that the team will make a strong comeback with a victory against Zimbabwe on Sunday.

The West African squad, eager to revive their 2026 FIFA World Cup qualifying campaign, faced a setback after failing to secure a win against Lesotho, considered minnows, in Thursday’s match on home turf.

With an opportunity to bounce back, Peseiro and his team are gearing up for a crucial showdown at Huye Stadium in Butare against Zimbabwe.

“Now we have to beat Zimbabwe on Sunday,” the Super Eagles manager declared.

The game will commence at 2 pm Nigerian time.
