Coach Jose Peseiro has said the Super Eagles ought to have thrashed home team Guinea Bissau 6-0 but for poor finishing.
On Monday, The Eagles avenged a 1-0 home loss courtesy of a 30th minute penalty goal by Moses Simon t regain leadership of AFCON Group A.
“We created many opportunities, but again we lost these chances,” Peseiro said after the match in Bissau.
“We should have won 5-1 in the first game and 5-0, 6-0 in the second game. That would have been a fair result.
“Our mistake was our finishing,
“We played a nice, offensive game, that is what I like, but Guinea did not create one opportunity.
“I am happy with how we played, not the result because we lost the first game.”
First-choice goalkeeper Francis Uzoho will miss the team’s next game away to Sierra Leone in June, but Peseiro maintained he has confidence in whoever will replace him.
