Super Eagles coach, Jose Peseiro will not be fired despite the shocking four-nil loss to Portugal in Lisbon on Thursday, November 17.

This was disclosed by a high-ranking member of the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) in a chat with ESPN. He said: “He has just started and we need to be patient with him.

“He has also won the two games that were important, that is the qualifiers for the Nations Cup. Friendlies are just friendlies, and we will judge him on the qualifiers.”

Two goals from Manchester United midfielder, Bruno Fernandes in the first half and two more from Gonzalo Ramos and Joao Mario condemned Nigeria to another defeat in a few days.

Peseiro who took over the team in June has won two and lost five matches.

The display from Peseiro's team had led to rumors that the Portuguese gaffer may be pushed closer to the exit door.
