Head coach of Nigeria’s Super Eagles Jose Peseiro says he cannot wait to see his side do battle against his own country, Portugal.
Peseiro’s side have a friendly lined up against the former European champions in Lisbon on November 17.
The Eagle from Nigeria lost 2-1 to the Desert Foxes of Algeria in a friendly at the Miloud Hadefi Stadium, Oran on Tuesday night.
The gaffer told NFF TV that” I am happy to play against Portugal. It is my country”.
“We will do a good match.
“I hope the players who are injured recover (in time for this match).
“I will choose the best players, but I hope no big injuries in the team.”
Super Eagles have not won in their last five matches.
