Jose Peseiro’s men were beaten 4-0 by the Selecao, continuing their poor run under the Portuguese tactician
Ignore Nigeria’s perceived improvement after half-time against Portugal and focus on proceedings when this was anything resembling a contest.
Fernando Santos’ crew shut down the Super Eagles and barely broke a sweat at the Estadio Jose Alvalade in the opening half where the Super Eagles only shot at goal once.
At the other end, Bruno Fernandes and Joao Felix gave the West African nation a tough evening in the attacking third while Bernardo Silva produced a typical performance in attacking midfield.
The thrashing means Jose Peseiro has claimed only two victories since taking over the Nigeria job in May. A series of losses in friendly games is likely to dissatisfy fans who do not like to lose regardless of the circumstances.
