Swaziland, Djibouti W/Cup Qualifier Postponed

Swaziland, Djibouti W/Cup Qualifier Postponed

The 2018 preliminary round World Cup qualifier between Swaziland and Djibouti scheduled for Tuesday has been moved at least to either Wednesday or Thursday.

The Swazi Observer reports that the game has been postponed due to the inability of Djibouti's national team to arrive on time for the game.


Swaziland defeated Djibouti last Friday at the Hassan Galoud Stadium 6-0 and seems all set to play against Nigeria's Super Eagles in the next round of qualifiers to the 2018 World Cup in November 2015.

Swaziland’s Football Associations CEO Frederick Mngometulu confirmed the postponement while speaking with the Swazi publication.

“The match has been postponed to Wednesday (tomorrow) or Thursday as Djibouti failed to secure a flight from Nairobi, Kenya today (yesterday) for them to arrive in the country at least twenty four hours before the match,” said Mngometulu.

“We are going to discuss the way forward concerning the match but it is likely to be played within the next 48 hours. We will inform the nation on the new developments.”

Djibouti failed to secure their transit visas on time which saw them staying in Nairobi for the past two days.
