Swaziland’s national football team Coach, Harris Bulunga, said on Tuesday that Super Eagles’ Coach, Sunday Oliseh’s choice of players upset his game plan in a World Cup qualifying match against Nigeria.
Bulunga made the remark after the Super Eagles beat Swaziland 2-0 in the match played at the Adokiye Amiesimaka Stadium in Port Harcourt.
Moses Simon scored Nigeria`s first goal in the 51st minute while Defender, Efe Ambrose, nodded in the second goal in the 84th minute.
According to Bulunga, we expected Oliseh to field Mikel Obi. We did not see him and it was a surprise to us.
“ Sunday Oliseh surprised us with his tactics and choice of players. The Nigerian midfield was generally slow in the first leg in Swaziland.
“ In today`s match, the Nigerian midfield was more mobile and fluid and they created more chances in the match’’, he said.
The Swazi coach said the Eagles midfield was more coordinated in the game `today.’
He also tipped the Eagles to go places in the World Cup qualifying matches.
Super Eagles coach, Sunday Oliseh, said the Swazi`s did not come out to attack.
“ We had to make changes during the break to open them and score’’, he said.
