Mmegi Online :: Tshosane to try out Shillinde, Lekgari








Shillinde arrived in the country yesterday after getting his first call-up ahead of the Malawi game that is being used as a preparatory match ahead of the Ethiopia World Cup qualifying tie in Addis Ababa on March 24.Lekgari, impressive in his first senior team against the Warriors of Zimbabwe, will also join 20 local-based players in camp on Thursday after an earlier planned Monday camp was postponed to pave way for the midweek be MOBILE Premier League schedule.But all eyes will be on the 21-year-old Shillinde, who plies his trade at AFC Wimbledon in League Two.

Tshosane said he was excited about the prospects of taking a look at the new players."I'm quite happy with everything although we had to move our camp to Thursday because of league games. We should be resuming after Wednesday (tomorrow) with the new faces," Tshosane told Mmegi Sport.Tshosane was particularly impressed by Lekgari in Harare last month and said he would throw him into fray

again.Shillinde is in Wimbledon's Under-21 reserve side but has plenty of first team experience. He has been with the struggling club since the 2010/2011 season. The Ramotswa-born lad moved to England at a young age and the towering star plays as right-winger.Lekgari turns out for Namibia's log leaders Black Africa FC in the Namibian Premier League.The 22-year-old defender played for BMC and Black Peril before moving to Windhoek. He has previously represented Botswana at Under-20 and Under-23 level.

Meanwhile, South African Premiership side Wits University have released national team midfielder Ofentse Nato for the Malawi game.Platinum Stars and Bloemfontein Celtic were yet to confirm whether they would release Mogakolodi Ngele and Joel Mogorosi respectively.The Zebras leave for Addis Ababa on March 21, needing nothing short of victory to put their World Cup campaign back on track after losing 2-0 to Central African Republic (CAR) away in the opening match and drawing with South Africa 1-1 at the UB Stadium.
