Zebras deserve hero’s welcome – Tsogwane

Acting President Slumber Tsogwane has urged Batswana to stage a hero’s welcome for the senior national team, Zebras after their gallant performance at the ongoing COSAFA Cup tournament held in Durban, South Africa.

Zebras, which fought back to beat neighbouring and hosts, South Africa in their first game, will meet Zambia in the cup final on June 8.

In a game played on June 2, at Princess Magogo Stadium, the Zebras came from behind to level scores against a youthful Bafana Bafana side the majority of whose top players were on camp preparing for AFCON 2019.

After forcing a draw, the Zebras won 5-4 on penalties to book a semifinal spot for the proud blue, black and white outfit.

It was against the backdrop of the gallant fight displayed by the Zebras, that Tsogwane said during a Botswana Democratic Party (BDP) event, Batswana should stage a welcome befitting the boys’ display.

He congratulated the team and said the boys deserved a warm welcome back home at the end of the tournament.

Tsogwane uttered the sentiments before the mighty Zebras beat Lesotho 2-1 at Moses Mabhida Stadium in Durban on June 5 to pave a way to the COSAFA Cup final.

Against Lesotho, Zebras coach Mogomotsi ‘Teenage’ Mpote deployed a team that looked psyched to bury Likoena from the mountain Kingdom of Lesotho.

Captain Joel Mogorosi opened the score sheet following a sublime setup from his Rollers teammate, Mothusi Cooper.

Cooper, usually nimble, brought down a high ball with verve and lofted it over the approaching Lesotho keeper to set Mogorosi up for an opener.

Later on, Segolame Boy smashed a long-range grass-cutter to put the Zebras on a driver’s seat.



Its The Orange FA Cup Final!

League champions Township Rollers take on Orapa United in the 2019 Orange FA Cup Final on June 15, 2019, at Francistown Sports Complex for the finale of the first edition of this beautiful knockout tournament.

Rollers head into the game chasing a domestic double, having already clinched the Premiership. Orapa is seeking to be the first team to win The Orange Fa Cup, after finishing 3rd on the Premiership log this season.

The two teams have had a beautiful run into the final. The tournament saw Chobe and Bobonong host their biggest football match ever. Mapalastina faced Kazungula FIghters in what was referred to as David v Goliath clash in the Chobe area. On the other hand, the Ostriches gave Peace Makers of Bobonong a few peaceful lessons by putting the ball in the net 10 times.

Captain Omatla Kebatho, who is also the top goal scorer with 6 goals, will lead the Ostriches. Keagile Kgosipula of Rollers goes into Saturday final with a clean sheet, not having conceded a goal since the tournament started.
