2018 World Cup Qualifier: P’Harcourt To Host Eagles On November 17

The Super Eagles will welcome the King’s Shield to the Adokiye Amiesiamaka Stadium for the return leg of their 2018 World Cup qualifying second round match next month
Goal can reveal that the second leg, second round 2018 World Cup qualifier between Nigeria and Swaziland will take place in Port Harcourt on November 17, four days after the first leg in Lobamba.
The Super Eagles would travel to southern Africa for the first leg on November 13 before aiming to seal passage into the Third Round with a win in the Rivers State capital.
“The first leg will be played on Friday, November 13 while the return leg will be played in Port Harcourt on November 17,” Dr Mohammed Sanusi, general secretary of the Nigeria Football Federation told Goal.
Players from Europe are expected to arrive camp by Monday, November 9.
Earlier, the NFF announced via its website that the first leg game will take place under floodlight at the Somhlolo Stadium by 7pm. The 20,000-capacity arena is all standing.
The return leg will be in Port Harcourt, the city that is fast becoming the new home of the Super Eagles after it played host to September’s international friendly with Niger and October’s African Nations Championship qualifying game against Burkina Faso.
The NFF has not concluded plans about which city will host Egypt in the 2017 Africa Cup of Nations qualifiers, a game which had previously been slated for Kaduna.
Dr Sanusi said that decision would be made after next month’s matches.
