As the Super Eagles of Nigeria prepare to play Angola in a pivotal quarterfinal African Cup of Nations match at the Stade Felix Houphouet-Boigny, the setting is set for an exciting encounter.

As anticipation builds, Jose Peseiro has opted for consistency, maintaining the core lineup that secured a convincing victory over Cameroon weeks ago. However, amidst the excitement, it’s essential to dissect two key mistakes in Peseiro’s selection for this pivotal encounter.
