World Cup Qualifier: Eagles Depart For Swaziland Next Thursday

Super Eagles coach, Sunday Oliseh is expected to arrive Nigeria from Belgium on Sunday where he has been recuperating from a viral infection.

The Eagles coach will fly in with five of the foreign-based players invited for the 2018 World Cup qualifier against the Sihlangu Semnikati Swaziland on November 13, an official of the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) has said.

The official who refused to disclose the names of the players hinted that the six home-based players invited by the coach will also hit the team’s Abuja camp on the same day. “Let us forget who the players are for now and focus on the match,” said the official.

Oliseh will take charge of the team’s training after a two-week compulsory rest in Belgium as advised by his doctors.

Meanwhile, Eagles will travel next Thursday aboard a chartered Arik aircraft to Swaziland for the encounter that will be played at 7pm at the Somhlolo Stadium.

The team will fly straight from the FCT capital at 7am. 24 players were invited for the double header by Oliseh.

I Have Years Left At Chelsea- Mourinho Jose Mourinho believes he has years left at Chelsea despite the Premier League champions’ poor recent form.

The Blues have struggled to defend their title in 2015-16 and have lost six of their opening 11 games in the league so far this season.

Liverpool recorded their first victory under Jurgen Klopp at Stamford Bridge on Saturday, running out 3-1 winners despite falling behind to Ramires’s opening goal, further increasing the pressure on Mourinho.

However, the Portuguese is remaining defiant amid a flurry of reports suggesting he is on the verge of losing his job, having signed a new deal in the summer.
