Sports: Ecuador defeats were similar but not the same

 Sports: Ecuador defeats were similar but not the same

How has the new Super Eagles boss fared since taking charge of the three-time African champions? 

It was interesting to listen to Jose Peseiro’s post-match assessment after Nigeria were beaten 1-0 by Ecuador on Friday morning.  

Successive defeats in non-competitive friendlies mean the Portuguese manager remains winless after two losses against Mexico and the South American nation. 

Throw in the defeat by Tunisia at the Africa Cup of Nations and successive draws against Ghana in late March, and the Super Eagles’ winless run in competitive games and matches that do not count stand at five.

Having said that, Nigeria began with a clean slate with the former Sporting Braga boss in mid-May, so this ongoing run without a win under the Portuguese boss must be accompanied by the necessary context.
