Lagos - The Super Eagles of Nigeria may have the confidence
of Nigerians going into the 2018 World Cup qualifier against Swaziland who are
ranked 130 in the world but the former African champions may just have to be
prepared for the task ahead to avoid an upset.
When Swaziland hit Guinea 2-1 on the road in an AFCON
qualifier in June no one expected it even though a win over Tanzania, Lesotho
and a draw against Madagascar in the COSAFA Cup were recorded before the famous
win over Guinea in June, now another opportunity to hit the headline again
present itself as Swaziland battles Nigeria on Friday November 13.

coach of the team, Harries Bulunga admitted that Swaziland are the underdogs
ahead of the clash with the three time African champions, Nigeria.
Bulunga stated that his team is preparing hard, though
insisted that there are no stars in the team but Swaziland has a united team
who have been together for a long time and are ready to fight for each other
and fight for the nation.
The Sunday Oliseh tutored team, Super Eagles may throw Major
League Soccer (MLS) club, Seattle Sounders' forward, Obafemi and Manchester
City wonder kid, Kelechi Iheancho to the starting line-up but the team is
expected to bring up their A game at the Somhlolo National Stadium in Lobambo
knowing fully well that Swaziland dumped Djibouti 8-1 on aggregate to set up
the clash against Nigeria.For
