No fresh injury worries for Swaziland ahead Nigeria clash

16 November 2015, 18:07

Port Harcourt - The Swaziland National Team arrived in Port Harcourt on Sunday ahead of their World Cup qualifier against the Super Eagles at the Adokiye Amiesimaka Stadium.

Coach of the Sihlangu Semnikati, Harries Bulunga, says the squad has no fresh injury concerns though it is confirmed that he will be missing the services of four key players, including influential skipper Tony Tsabedze, who is suspended.

Two players, Felix Badenhorst and Mxolisi Lukhele, picked up injuries during the first leg on Friday and have not traveled with the squad to Port Harcourt, while Xolani Sibandze remained in Swaziland due to academic and work commitments.

‘‘We are now in Nigeria and we will be having our first training session in the evening (last night) once the players have recovered from the travel fatigue,'' said Bulunga.

''All the players are healthy and we pray that we will not pick up any late injuries before the match.''

Swaziland have never qualified for the final round, African Zone World Cup qualifiers and will be attempting to make history on Tuesday afternoon when they tackle the Super Eagles, with the game scheduled to begin at 1600 hours.
