Super Eagles Coach Jose Peseiro has heaped praises on his players despite losing to Mexico in an international friendly game in Dallas, USA.
Peseiro took charge of his first game as Eagles Coach but could not prevent his side from losing 2-1.
Europa Conference League top scorer Cyriel Dessers opened his goal account, as he equalised for the Eagles after Santiago Gimenez had given Mexico a first half lead.
But an own goal by William Troost-Ekong handed El Trimj 2-1 victory.
And speaking in his post-match press conference, Peseiro praised his players for their impressive display.
“In the first half Mexico was much better than us but in the second half I think we had more balance.
“I am not happy that we lost but I’m happy with the performance of my players because they showed character especially after what Mexico did in the first half. I think in the second half there was improvement.”
The Eagles will be in action in another friendly on June 2nd when they face Ecuador in New Jersey.
