COSAFA Under-20 Side Nation’s Last Hope

Rapelang Tsatsilebe
Following the dismal performances from other national sides, the national Under-20 side carries the nation’s hopes as preparations for this year’s COSAFA Under-20 championships begin.

The tournament runs from December 2 to December 15, 2018 in Zambia.

It has been a bad year for the national football sides with Zebras crashing out of the Africa Cup of Nations qualifiers with a single point from five games.

They scored only two goals in the campaign. Following their bad performance, the country pinned its hopes on the national Under-23 side when they started the qualifiers for the 2019 Under-23 AFCON.

However despite boasting some of the BTC Premiership stars, the team dubbed the Dream Team failed to live up to their hype. The national Under-20 side are now the last hope to wrap the year on a high note.

The team reported for camp on Thursday

and travelled to Zambia on Saturday to play some friendly matches in preparation for the Under-20 COSAFA tournament. Coach, Rapelang Tsatsilebe has called 20 players for the trip to Zambia.

Goalkeepers: Thabo    Motswagole (BDF XI), Lesang Senne (Lesirane), Maikano Tladinyane (Hungry Leopards)
