Super Eagles Coach, Jose Peseiro, says his target is to thrash the Portugal side that will be led by Manchester United star, Cristiano Ronaldo on Thursday.
Peseiro, in an interview with a Lisbon-based radio station in Portugal, said the Eagles attempt to dominate possession of the game as they also would try to win the encounter.
The 62-year-old coach, while speaking ahead of the much-anticipated game, explained that he planned to ensure Nigeria does not lose with a wide goal margin. He said there is always the strategic side of the game.
Nigeria has failed to win in any of their last 11 friendlies, but they will hope to end the unwanted record when they face the Euro 2016 champions in Lisbon.
Though the three-time African champions will not be present in Qatar for the World Cup, they have however been involved in friendly matches with teams that will be at the biggest football showpiece, such as Mexico, Ecuador, and now Portugal.
