Head coach of Nigeria’s Super Eagles, Jose Peseiro, has reacted to striker Emmanuel Dennis’ penalty miss during his side's 4-0 international friendly loss to Portugal.



Peseiro watched as Portugal defeated Nigeria at the Estádio José Alvalade in Lisbon.

Manchester United’s Bruno Fernandes tapped in for Portugal after seven minutes and doubled the advantage for the home side from the spot in the 35th minute.

Dennis could have changed the shape of the game but wasted the good chance from the penalty spot, and Gonçalo Ramos immediately added the third in the 83rd minute before Joo Mário finished it up by scoring the last goal for Portugal.

Asked about Dennis missing the penalty awarded to the Super Eagles, Peseiro NFF TV said: “We need to defend our players."

“Which player has not missed a penalty before?" "Any player can miss a penalty, so Emmanuel Dennis has my support.”
