Swaziland coach Harris Bulunga has indicated his awareness of the threat posed by Obafemi Martins, Ahmed Musa, and Odion Ighalo ahead of his side's World Cup qualifier against Nigeria on Tuesday.

Swaziland played a goalless draw in the first leg against the Super Eagles at Swaziland, with the second leg scheduled to be played in Port Harcourt.

The winner proceeds to the next qualifying stage for the 2018 FIFA World Cup.

“Obviously, Nigeria will come out hard on us and the Eagles will want to impress in front of their home fans. But we’ll be patient to play our game. Everybody knows that we are not professionals, but we’ll play good game,” Bulunga said, goal.com reports.

“We’ll also be mindful of the threats pose by Musa and Ighalo who are dangerous players and more importantly, Martins who plays in America; he is a deadly player in front of goal. We always watched him how he scored goals for his MLS club.

“The plan is not to stop these players individually, but we plan to stop the whole team.

“There are no more minnows in football again. We’ll go all out to score in this match, unlike what happened in the first leg. We need to score this time around. We’ll be adventurous because we’ve surprise in stock for the Super Eagles,” he concluded.
