Coach of the Sihlangu Somnikati of Swaziland, Harries Bulunga, has said that his team will beat and the Super Eagles in the second leg of the 2018 FIFA World Cup qualifier on Tuesday in Port Harcourt. Speaking on arrival in Port Harcourt on Sunday morning, Bulunga said his team was poised for victory after holding the Eagles to a goalless draw in 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,” he said. 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. Meanwhile, Namibian official Jackson Pavaza will be the referee for the game that will hold at the 40,000 –capacity Adokiye Amiesiamaka Stadium, Port Harcourt.
