AFCON 2023: Why There Are Reasons To Be Worried About Peseiro’s Squad —Ex-Super Eagles Star

Former Nigeria international Sam Sodje has said there are reasons to be worried about Jose Peseiro’s 25-man Super Eagles squad for the AFCON 2023.

Speaking on Brila FM, Sodje posited that Peseiro is taking an imbalance squad to this year’s tournament in Côte d’Ivoire.

“We are going to the AFCON with an imbalance squad, we are taking too many strikers, we are lacking that creativity in the midfield where players can pass the ball forward and create chances to win games.

“We are going with too many side passes players, no disrespect to the players and we’ve been conceding goals left, right and centre. We should stop that because a solid defence is the benchmark to win a tournament.

“Also, it is a well known fact the problem we have in the goalkeeping department.

“So if you put all these together there are reasons to be worried but we are fans of the Super Eagles and we will support them.”

The competition will begin on 13 January and end 11 February 2024.
