The Swazis host the Super Eagles of Nigeria at the Somhlolo National Stadium in Mbabane in the first of a two-pronged affair, with the overall winner progressing to the next round of qualifiers.

"I think it's a very solid team," said Oliseh to News24. "It's a good team because you don't put eight goals past any team in this day, in modern football, like they did to Djibouti. You can't do that if you're not doing something right.

"Let's also not forget they didn't only beat Djibouti, they beat Guinea also in the Africa Cup of Nations qualifiers, so it's a good team."

The Super Eagles already departed Nigeria via the Nnamdi Azikiwe International Airport, Abuja with a chartered flight, direct to Mbabane.

Speaking on how he hopes to defeat the Swazi's, Oliseh admitted a lot will depend on how his team performs.

"How we go past them will depend on how we perform," admitted Oliseh. "I am honest here because if my players can really come up to it and take it as I feel they want to take it, we should qualify to the next round," Oliseh added.
