The Super Eagles of Nigeria were involved in their first training session on arrival at Swaziland ahead of the 2018 FIFA World Cup qualifier against the Sihlangu Somnikati.

According to thenff.com, the team landed at the Matsapha International Airport, Manzini at 4 pm Swazi time (3 pm Nigeria time), after six hours airborne.

The team was received by some Nigerians based in Swaziland “who cheered and sang various songs as players and officials walked into awaiting buses”.

The Super Eagles had a feel of the Somhlolo National Stadium, venue of the match, as coach Sunday Oliseh supervised a 45-minute session under the floodlights.

“Our objective is clear,” Oliseh told thenff.com afterwards.

“We are here to play well and win well. The NFF are doing their part well by ensuring comfortable traveling and accommodation arrangements. Now, we will go to the field tomorrow and give our very best for our country.

“I have confidence in this group. The players still need time and matches to bond together very well, but I love the hunger to achieve that I see in these boys.”

The match will kick off at 7 pm Swaziland time, which is 6 pm in Nigeria.
