Jose Peseiro's tenure as head coach of the Super Eagles has been met with skepticism and scrutiny, with doubts lingering over his ability to guide the team to success.

Following Nigeria's failure to qualify for the 2022 World Cup under his leadership, Peseiro faced mounting pressure to deliver results in the AFCON 2023 tournament.

However, Peseiro and his team have defied expectations, showcasing an impressive defensive record and resilient performances throughout the competition.

With Nigeria now on the cusp of reclaiming continental glory in the finals against Ivory Coast, Peseiro has the opportunity to silence his critics and cement his legacy as a successful coach for the Super Eagles.

With the unwavering support of his family and the Nigerian faithful behind him, Peseiro stands poised to lead Nigeria to their fourth AFCON title and etch his name in the annals of Nigerian football history, when Nigeria and Ivory Coast lock horns on February 11.
