Young Zebras coach Kaelo ‘Wire’ Kaelo has said qualification to the 2024 Olympic Games is a priority as the team begins the journey to Paris, France today.

The Young Zebras take on Eswatini at the Somhlolo National Stadium in Lobamba. The two teams meet in the first leg of the 2023 AFCON Under-23 qualifiers. Paris will host the 2024 Olympic Games.

Speaking ahead of the trip to Mbabane, Kaelo said his troops will look to make the most positive start to the qualification. “I have been appointed as the head coach for the Under-23 specifically to oversee the qualification for the Olympics 2024.

Looking at what we have been doing, we should be able to get the results in Eswatini.
