Swaziland showed no mercy when they thumped Djibouti 6-0 in their first leg of their 2018 FIFA World Cup qualifier on Friday at the El Hadj Hassan Gouled Stadium.

It was the year 20-year-old Mthunzi Mkhontfo who opened the scoring for Swaziland in the additional minutes of the first half.

This saw Swaziland going to break with a slender 1-0 lead, but came out firing in the second stanza.

In the second half, Sabelo Ndzinisa extended the lead to 2-0 as he netted in the 62nd minute.

Muzomohle Dlamini also registered his name on the score sheet in the 74th minute and three minutes later Sandile Hlatjwako also found the back of the net as he extended the lead to 4-0.

In the last ten minutes senior player Thulani Tsabedze also led by example as he netted a brace in the 83rd and 85th minute, ensuring that his side take a comfortable 6-0 victory.

The two teams will now meet on Tuesday for their second leg at Lobamba and the winners will take on Nigeria in the next round.
