The defeat came despite William Troost-Ekong’s early goal for Nigeria, with the Ivorians staging a second-half comeback to clinch victory.

Peterside believes the ultra defensive approach does not align with Nigeria’s style of play.

“Brazilians play Samba football, the British play fast football, but now we are playing the Portuguese version of Jose Mourinho where we pack the bus. That is what we are playing now, but this is not our style,” Peterside told Channels Television.
