Chukwu, Amuneke Back Super Eagles To Beat Swaziland

By Izuchukwu Okosi:

The Super Eagles have been urged to go for the kill in Tuesday's crucial second round qualifier to the 2018 World Cup.

Former Eagles stars Christian Chukwu and Emmanuel Amuneke spoke to on their expectations on the game.

The Eagles were held to a nervy goalless draw in the first leg in Lombaba on Friday.
"Victory is all we want against Swaziland in Port Harcourt. I don't really mind who starts or comes off the bench in this return leg, we just have to win," 1980 Africa Cup of Nations hero and 2004 Nations Cup coach Chukwu told

"What matters most is that we score and prevent the Swaziland side from doing same. The goals must also come in time."

On his part, victorious coach of the Golden Eaglets that recently won the FIFA U-17 World Cup for a record fifth time, Amuneke, believes that the coaching crew of the Eagles know how best to handle the threat of the Swaziland team.

"The Super Eagles had the opportunity to play the first leg away in Lombaba and thankfully did not lose the match.

"Now I believe the Eagles coaching crew led by Sunday Oliseh must have studied the strengths and weaknesses of their opponents.

"The 0-0 draw was not the result every Nigerian wished for but it was not a defeat. The players must be put in the right frame of mind ahead of this match. We just have to win and win well," the 1994 African Footballer of the Year winner told

The game at the Adokie Amiesiameka Stadium kicks off at 4pm.

The winners of two-legged ties across Africa qualify for the group stage and final round of qualifiers that will produce Africa's five representatives at the 2018 World Cup in Russia.
