Swaziland fear factor Nigeria should be wary of

12 November 2015, 17:34

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.

According to reports gathered in the Swaziland press, the 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.
