Hectic Women’s Team schedule

The Women’s National Team will have a hectic schedule in the next few weeks. The team is scheduled to compete at the 2019 COSAFA Women’s Challenge in Port Elizabeth from 31st July to 11th August 2019. They are also scheduled to travel to Slovakia for a two-week-long training camp from the 4-14th August 2019, where they will play several friendly games when in Slovakia.

The Botswana Football Association has taken into consideration this schedule and through consultation with the technical team, has appointed National Under-20 Coach Jacqueline Gaboinelwe to lead the national team in the absence of coach Gaoletlhoo Nkutusang. Nkutusang will be in Slovakia with other members of the team preparing for the 2020 Olympic qualifier game. Gaebolae will step up to guide the team to the championships.

The two COSAFA championships will be important for the National team structures to give younger players and the coaches a platform to grow and earn their stripes in the women’s game.

Coach Gaoletlhoo Nkutusang has edged all player who will be selected for COSAFA to perform to their level best as she will be watching to improve the strength of the team that she will go to Slovakia with and ultimately the team that will play the 2020 Olympic qualifier with.
