Zebras coach, Mogomotsi ‘Teenage’ Mpote will look to break the team’s seven-game drought when his charges face Equatorial Guinea in a 2023 Africa Cup of Nations qualifier.

It will be a tricky but winnable task as the Zebras face their opponents away at the Estadio de Malabo in the first of the back-to-back ties between the two. Before leaving for Malabo, Mpote revealed that his target was at least four points against the National Thunder as Equatorial Guinea is known.

Mpote’s side sits at the bottom of Group J but crucially, just three behind group leaders, Tunisia while Libya and Equatorial Guinea are level on three points. A positive result against National Thunder will put the Zebras back in contention for a spot in the finals. At the peak of Mpote’s worries were the climate conditions in Equatorial Guinea but he told Mmegi Sport this week that the team has settled well.
