Underfire The Portuguese manager Jose Peseiro made five substitutions to the squad that lost 1-0 to the Wild Dogs at the Moshood Abiola National Stadium in Abuja, Nigeria, on Friday.

Semi Ajayi started in defence in place of Kevin Akpoguma, who was injured, and Kenneth Omeruo was favoured over Calvin Bassey.

Frank Onyeka replaced Wilfred Ndidi of Leicester City in midfield, Moses Simon replaced Ademola Lookman on the left flank, while Terem Moffi replaced Kelechi Iheanacho in attack.

Bissau Guineans striker Mama Balde, who scored the game-winning goal for his team on Friday, had the game’s first opportunity after 10 minutes, but his shot went wide.

Ten minutes passed before the Eagles generated their first opportunity, but Nice striker Terem Moffi’s attempt was blocked by Sori Mane and diverted for a corner kick.

Simon, a winger for Nantes, took the penalty kick and sent goalkeeper Jonas Mendes the wrong way to put the Eagles in front.

The goal soothed the Eagles’ anxieties, allowing them to have greater control of the ball.

The referee cautioned Omeruo for a reckless challenge on Balde in the 36th minute.

The second half of the game was a free-for-all, as both teams came out scoring.

Baciro Cande’s team nearly scored an equaliser in the 61st minute, but Jorginho was unable to properly connect with the ball, resulting in a narrow miss. A few seconds later, Osimhen believed he had increased the visitors’ lead, but his low shot struck the inside of the post, much to the hosts’ relief.

Balde forced Francis Uzoho to make a stop in the 67th minute, before Aribo, who replaced Moffi in the 61st minute, nearly missed scoring after receiving a pass from Simon; however, his shot was blocked to deprive the Eagles a two-goal advantage.

After receiving a wonderful through ball from Samuel Chukwueze, Osimhen watched in agony as his shot slid beyond the face of the goal post.

In the second half, neither team was able to penetrate the other defense, and Simon’s penalty in the 30th minute was enough to propel the Eagles to the top of Group A with nine points from four games.

Guinea-Bissau is in second place with seven points, and Sierra Leone is in third place with five points. Whipping boys.

Peseiro, who has received stinging criticism from the country’s football-obsessed people following last week’s loss, has led the three-time African champions to three victories in eight games since assuming his position in May 2022.JAMB Result

The centre-back pairing of Omeruo and Ajayi was more solid than the Akpoguma-Bassey pairing in Abuja, while Onyeka provided more and energy to the Eagles’ midfield, something Ndidi lacked in the opener.
