The Super Eagles returned to Nigeria on Saturday after Friday’s 0-0 draw in Swaziland.
The draw means that the Eagles are condemned to win to ensure qualification to the final group phase of qualifiers in the 2018 World Cup qualifying series.
The Eagles, who travelled on an Arik Air Boeing 737-800, flew straight to Port Harcourt, the venue of Tuesday’s return leg and must-win clash against the Swazis.
The arrival of the Eagles was confirmed via the official twitter handle of the team at around 8am Saturday morning.
“We have arrived safely in Port Harcourt. We thank God for journey mercies. Preparations begin in earnest for Tuesday’s 2nd leg vs Swaziland,” the tweet read.
