Ahead of the game which will kick off at 6 p.m., coach Jose Peseiro stressed that he has urged the Super Eagles not to be too excited that they have made it to the quarter-finals.
The Portuguese tactician however stressed that his team is good enough to win the 2023 AFCON just like the other seven teams in the last 8 of the tournament.

“I am telling them that we are only in the last 8, that we still have some way to go, and that the farther we go, the tougher the opposition becomes. We have played four matches and won three, so we must keep level heads as we go forward,” Jose Peserio told

“Our philosophy is that there are no small teams here at the Africa Cup. Every team qualified to be here, and every team in the knockout phase qualified from a group phase. Any team in the last 8 is good enough for the trophy. We believe we are good enough for the trophy, but we must continue working and putting out our best on match days.”
