AFCON 2023 final: Atiku’s ex-aide, Bwala reveals why Super Eagles lost

Daniel Bwala, a former aide to the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, ex-presidential candidate, Atiku Abubakar, has disclosed how the Super Eagles coach, Jose Peseiro made the Nigerian team lose the Africa Cup of Nations, AFCON, final to Cote d’Ivoire.

Bwala explained that Peseiro’s change of tactics cost the Nigerian team a win over their Ivorian counterpart.

He noted that Peseiro should have stuck to his tactics of free flow and attack as against defending.

Posting on X, Bwala wrote: “Super Eagles, you did well throughout the tournament.

“If I were the coach I would have stuck to my plans of free flow and attack style which has worked for me throughout the tournament than try to defend and see out the match knowing the home crowd would ginger the Ivorians to sustain the attack pressure.

“The coach’s tactics to defend and see out the match isn’t what we are known for and wasn’t what we used throughout the tournament. If it isn’t broken, don’t fix it.”
