Super Eagles head coach, Jose Peseiro has warned his players they must be at their best to beat South Africa.
The Super Eagles of Nigeria will take on the Bafana Bafana of South Africa in a semi-final fixture at the ongoing 2023 Africa Cup of Nations on Wednesday.
Despite the three-time champions impressing football fans with their intelligent display in Cote d’Ivoire, Peseiro claims it is important for the players to give more than 100 hundred percent on the pitch when they face the South Africans.
“We’re doing a good job. Good organisation and good commitment, we play like a team together,” the Portuguese coach told a press conference in Bouake on Tuesday., February 6.
“It will be a tough match against a good national team.
“We want to beat South Africa to reach the final. For that we have to play a high-level match against a South African team who eliminated Morocco, who did a fantastic World Cup.
“We must play 100% or more to beat a very good team.”
“My belief is that we can win this competition,”he added.
“But they also want to win AFCON, just like us.”
