Latest entertainment gist

Tactics wasn’t the reason for Super Eagles defeat, Nigeria head coach, Jose Peseiro tries to defend as Nigerians reel from the 2-1 defeat in the AFCON to Ivory Coast despite taking the lead into half-time.

In the wake of Nigeria’s heart-wrenching defeat to Ivory Coast in the 2023 Africa Cup of Nations final, head coach Jose Peseiro has addressed the team’s tactical approach during the match, shedding light on his decision not to alter their game plan despite conceding the lead.

The Super Eagles appeared poised for victory after William Troost-Ekong’s first-half header gave them the lead, but Ivory Coast staged a remarkable comeback in the second half, netting two goals to clinch the trophy.

When questioned about his team’s defensive stance following their early advantage, Peseiro defended his decision, emphasizing the continuity of their tried-and-tested strategy.

“When you have a system that you have been using and it has been working, you really don’t want to change it,” Peseiro remarked in the aftermath of the match.

“It is true that I kept to this strategy until we were 2-1 down and then I decided to change it.”

Latest entertainment gist

The Big Brother season seven winner; Josephina Otabor, who is popularly called Phyna, reveals she has never dated a rich guy even after winning the reality tv show.

Naija 102.7 FM had an interview with the star, where she emphasized that she is not moved by material wealth.

The winner of Big Brother Naija 2022 show asserted that she has never been in a relationship with a man wealthier than herself, even before gaining fame.

Furthermore, she disclosed that she outrightly turned down a male fan’s proposition of N5 million to spend the night with him, as she does not engage in “runs.”

“These were my reasons for turning down the rowdy fan’s N5m offer for sxx: Number one, I don’t do runs. I can’t date someone just because he bought me a car. I prefer to date genuinely. We will be friends.

“As a matter of fact, I have never dated a man who is richer than me. Even before I won the Big Brother Naija show, I didn’t date any rich guy. I have always been hard working even while in school. In my previous relationships, I have always been the one supporting financially. No man has really lavished money on me in a relationship.”
