Zebras Return to wining ways

The mighty Zebras returned to winning ways on Saturday at the Lobatse Sports Complex after two quick Second-half goals from Segolame Boy and Thatayaone Dithokwe, who scored his first Zebras goal in only his second cap for the team.

National team Captain Joel Mogorosi says the win was needed as the team had not won in a long time and that it was important that the team take control of the tie. Mogorosi says the new crop of players at the National team are committed and a talented group that will be fighting hard to prove to the country that they deserve to represent them.

The Zebras will play Seychelles again in a fortnight away in the second leg of the two-legged affair with the Zebras carrying a healthy 2-0 lead. Caretaker coach Mogomotsi Mpote also highlighted that winning without giving an away goal to Seychelles will make their job less stressful in Seychelles in a fortnight from Saturday.


Magang to attend Women in Football Leadership Programme

Since the approval of the FIFA reforms by the Extraordinary FIFA Congress in February 2016, FIFA has placed great emphasis on bringing more women into football’s decision-making bodies, as evidenced by the increased presence of women on the FIFA Council, FIFA
Standing Committees, FIFA Management Board, as well as in the wider FIFA administration.

The success of the FIFA Women’s World Cup France 2019 has further raised the awareness of women’s football and its unique qualities, both on and off the pitch, including the positive impact the game has on girls and women around the world.

Following these successes of women’s national teams, the Botswana Football Association is delighted to inform the media and public that FIFA has invited National Executive Committee members Mrs Tsoseletso Magang to the second edition of the Women in Football Leadership Programme. This workshop reinforces Botswana’s as well as FIFA’s commitment to increase women’s participation in senior decision-making positions within football.

Mrs Magang’s participation in the programme will prove to be of great importance to advance women’s football in Botswana. She will be provided with the opportunity to grow as a leader in football in a multicultural and international environment.

Good progress has been made in women’s in recent times but the Football Association believes there is still a long way to go and more efforts are required. Mrs Tsoseletso Magang will be heading to Switzerland to attend the 2019 Women in Leadership program from 18th-22ndNovember 2019
