Super Eagles coach Sunday Oliseh insists that he is not overwhelmed by the pressure of handling the Nigeria team, while he is proid of the results since he took over.
Speaking with the media in Abuja on Wednesday, Oliseh said that it has been tough and rough but that he has been able to come through very well, adding that the pressure is not unexpected.

"We are going to play Swaziland with the respect due to a team that beat Djibouti and drew with Guinea. We shall give it our best shot and see how it goes. The outcome will be determined by the way we play."
