Oliseh says we have to fear Swaziland

11 November 2015, 13:09

Abuja - Super Eagles coach Sunday Oliseh has posited that he and his team must entertain some level of fear when they face Swaziland in a 2018 FIFA World Cup qualifier on Friday.

Speaking to the media after their first training session on Tuesday evening, Oliseh said they must also respect their opponents, irrespective of their standing in the game.

"We always have a reason to entertain fear against any opponent," Oliseh told News24.

"If we don't respect them, they will kick us out and this is a World Cup qualifier, so we have to respect them and take them as very worthy opponents."

As at Tuesday's training, the team was still expecting three players; Obafemi Martins, Shehu Abdullahi and Ogenyi Onazi (all three players have since joined the team), but Oliseh said he wasn't concerned about the short time the players will have together before the game.

"The players were not here because of flight problems but they will meet up, I have no concerns. We had a very good tour of Belgium so I'm not really worried about that and I think it's good for us," Oliseh said.
