Nigeria’s Super Eagles will be entertained by the Sihlangu Semnikati of Swaziland at the Somhlolo National Stadium in Lobamba on November 13, in a 2018 FIFA World Cup Round 2 first leg qualifier.

The Swaziland Football Association has fixed the match to kick off at 7pm Swazi time [6pm Nigeria time], at the 20,000 capacity Somhlolo Stadium, which is an all-standing arena.

Sihlangu Semnikati, which means “King’s Shield”, famously defeated Guinea 2-1 in a 2017 AFCON qualifier in Casablanca in September and eliminated Djibouti 8-1 on aggregate in the Round One of the African qualifiers of the 2018 World Cup.
