Head coach of the Super Eagles Sunday Oliseh is concerned about playing Friday’s FIFA World Cup qualifier against Swaziland on an artificial turf and also said that the King’s Shield are a “difficult team” to play and should be respected.
The qualifier into the group stages of the Russia 2018 qualifiers will be played at the Somhlolo National Stadium in Lobamba and the 2nd leg will be played next week Tuesday at the Adokiye Amiesimaka Stadium in Port Harcourt.
Oliseh has revealed his ambition for the Super Eagles for the next world cup which is to qualify Nigeria for the World Cup and then take it from there, but insists that Swaziland must not be written off.
“I want to get my country to the group stage and eventually to the World Cup. That is our only ambition, and if we don’t respect [our opponents], we will fall short of it. Swaziland is a difficult team, and it is not going to be easy playing them, especially on an artificial turf at their home,” Oliseh told Fifa.com..
