A former Nigerian international goalkeeper, Idah Peterside, has called for the sacking of the Super Eagles Coach, Jose Peseiro.

Peseiro led the Super Eagles to the final of the African Cup of Nations which ended yesterday. However, the team lost to Ivory Coast to claim second.

Two strikes from Franck Kessie and Sebastien Haller were enough to cancel Troost-Ekong’s opener.

Prior to the game, the Super Eagles players and officials were confident that Nigeria would be crowned kings of Africa after Sunday’s Africa Cup of Nations final clash against host Ivory Coast.

He asserted that Peseiro’s moment with the national team is over while decrying Peseiro’s defensive approach to games which he said is new to the country.

“You know, a lot of people asked me yesterday, if the coach got to the finals,” he said on Monday’s edition of Channels Television’s Sunrise Daily. “What do you think? I said, fire him!” he said.

The AFCON hosts, Ivory Coast became the reigning champions after beating the Nigerian team 2-1 in the Africa Cup of Nations final on Sunday night at the Alassane Ouattara Stadium.
