Zebras Camp – Kgamanyane out Gadibolae in

Senior National team coach Mogomotsi Mpote has called up utility player Tapiwa “Navara” Gadibolae to replace  Thatayaone Kgamanyane who is heading to Dubai for football trials.

Mpote highlighted that Kgamanyane will be missed but the arrival of Gadibolae will increase the depth and experience in the middle of the park as well as at the back.

Gadibolae who has had a good season with PoliceXI believe he is ready and hungry to win every game he plays. The Police XI vice-captain trained with his Zebras teammates this morning. He expressed his delight with the call up and says every chance to play for the country is an honor to him.

Gadibolae last played for the Zebras away in Zimbabwe as the Zebras won the Zimbabwe independence cup in Harare.
