Nigeria manager, Jose Pesiero spoke to the media in his homeland Portugal ahead of this evening’s international friendly.

The match, scheduled for Estádio José Alvalade, may shed some light on Portugal coach Fernando Santos’ starting lineup against Ghana in the World Cup opener as the Black Stars and Super Eagles have a similar playing style, Njenje Media News reports.

Peseiro will not be able to count on the services of in-form Napoli striker, Victor Osimhen who has withdrawn from the Super Eagles squad citing injury.

Former Porto center back, Chidozie Awaziem, Boavista fullback, Bruno Onyemaechi, ex-Feirense midfielder, Oghenekaro Etebo and former Benfica right back, Tyronne Ebuehi are all available for selection.

Although it’s only a friendly, Pesiro stressed that he wants the best possible result against his country.

“If we can’t win, let’s draw. If we can’t draw, let’s not lose by many. That’s the goal,” Peseiro said to Lisbon based radio station, TSF.

Pesiero has lost his first three friendly matches since his appointment as Nigeria coach, against Mexico, Ecuador and Algeria.
