Botswana national team head coach, Letang ‘Rasta’ Kgegwenyane is optimistic about Saturday’s COSAFA Cup 2021 second clash against Lesotho adding that he and the team are in high spirits to defeat the squad from Lesotho.

Kgengwenyane said that the mood in the Zebras camp ahead of the Saturday clash is calm, warm and friendly as the national team is well prepared for the match and the morale is high.

‘Everything is going according to plan. What we are trying to do now is to heal our wounds and correct the mistakes from the South Africa game. There are positives which we can draw from this game, being match fitness, as evidenced by our players’ full run during that game. Hence why we didn’t make so many substitutions because we wanted to ensure that the core of our team reaches a certain level of fitness, in terms of match fitness,” said Kgengwenyane.

Furthermore, Kgengwenyane said the only changes that have been made to the team are that captain, Thatayaone ‘TT’ Ditlhokwe has had to come back home due to a family bereavement. “He will not feature in our Lesotho game but now we are looking at Thato Kebue and Fortunate Thulare to see who the best replacement can be. The other development is that Kabelo Seakanyeng and Tumisang Orebonye have reportedly done their covid-19 testing and awaiting results which will come out soon. They already have their tickets, and we are hopeful they will fly in tonight (08 July 2021) and join the team in Port Elizabeth on Friday morning,” added Kgengwenyane.

He said the Moroccan-based duo will then be assessed for fatigue before preparing them for Saturday’s game. “Their availability will give us more options in terms of line up selection. Also worthy of note is that Mothusi Cooper and Kago Monyake  duo to complete their isolation on Saturday, and if we win on Saturday, we stand a chance of progressing then we will expect them to also come and join their teammates here either on Sunday or Monday,” said Kgengwenyane.
