The Eagles booked their place at next year’s tournament following the hard fought win against the Leone Stars.
A brace from Victor Osimhen and a late goal from Kelechi Iheanacho sealed the win for the Eagles.
Despite the win, the 1980 AFCON winner with the Green Eagles (now Super Eagles), credited the players and not Peseiro for the win.
“The players just made sure they get victory, that’s the only thing I see because there was no tactical play in the team at all,” Ikhana who won led Enyimba to the 2003 CAF Champions League title, said on Brila FM.
“Everybody wants to win, the players want to so I give the credit to the players not to the coach.“
Ikhana added that he will prefer an indigenous coach for the Eagles.
“I think an indigenous coach will pay us better than bringing in a foreign coach that is not reliable. I have said it before I prefer any Nigerian coach.“
