Swaziland vow to attack Eagles in Port Harcourt

16 November 2015, 08:44

Abuja - The Senior National Team of Swaziland, nicknamed the Sihlangu Semnikati, insists it will go on the offensive when the referee’s whistle sounds for kick –off of Tuesday’s 2018 FIFA World Cup qualifier against the Super Eagles of Nigeria.

Namibian official Jackson Pavaza will be the referee for the game that will hold at the 40,000 –capacity Adokiye Amiesiamaka Stadium, Port Harcourt.

On arrival in Port Harcourt on Sunday morning, Sihlangu’s Coach, Harries Bulunga, reiterated the position he held after the first leg in Lobamba on Friday. “We held our own very well in the first leg and we will go for broke on Tuesday.”

The Sihlangu are hoping to take the Eagles by surprise and create one of the biggest surprises in international football, but Eagles Coach Sunday Oliseh has expressed confidence in his boys to “do the job on Tuesday and get us into the group stage.”

Both teams finished the opening leg scoreless as the Sihlangu stifled the Eagles on the artificial turf of the poorly –lit Somhlolo National Stadium in Lobamba.

Bulunga will depend largely on the speed of team captain Tony Tsabedze on the counter, as well as footworks of Siyabonga Mdluli, Mthunzi Mkhontfo, Mcolisi Lukhele, Felix Badenhorst, Saneliso Dlamini, Menzi Sithole and Sabelo Ndzinisa.
