Nigeria coach Jose Peseiro has blamed their defeat to Guinea-Bissau on bad luck.
The Super Eagles suffered a shock 1-0 loss in Abuja on Friday, thanks to a first-half goal from Mama Balde.
The win took the Djurtus to top of Group A with seven points, while Peseiro’s men dropped to second.
“I think we played very well in the first 30 minutes but didn’t score.
“It showed that our team is better than Guinea-Bissau. I can say bad luck was part of the reason we didn’t win.
“Sometimes the best teams can lose games this way, so everything went bad for us,” Peseiro said after the game.
