Okoye’s howler gifted Algeria the opening goal and he was subbed off after the first half break as part of wholesome changes made by Peseiro, who was keen on rescuing something from the game.

Ahead of today’s game, Peseiro said one error isn’t enough to write him off and he could yet keep his spot in the starting lineup if the goalkeepers trainer insist on having him in goal.

” One mistake is not enough. It’s very normal for it to happen. It’s a team game and we conceded as a team not as individual. If the coach says to me I want Maduka in goal then I will . him. Mistakes are part of the game”, the Portuguese told OwnGoalNigeria.com ahead of today’s game.
