Swaziland to face Nigeria in 2018 World Cup qualifier


Swaziland advanced to the second round of the 2018 World Cup qualifiers on Saturday where they will face Nigeria after trouncing Djibouti 8-1 on aggregate.

After suffering postponements due to the Djibouti team being stuck in transit in Kenya, the Swazi side cemented their place in the next round with a 2-1 win in Lobamba following their first leg 6-0 away win in Djibouti.
A brace from Sandile Hlatjwako condemned the visitors to another defeat despite finally scoring for the first time in the two-legged encounter through Mohamed Issa Liban.
Swaziland will now face Nigeria over two legs in mid-November to determine which side will reach the final qualifying group phase.
The King’s Shield are ranked 135th by Fifa while the Super Eagles are ranked 52nd.
