Senior Women Team Faces Partizan Bardejov tonight

The senior women national football team will test its readiness for the Olympic Games against Slovakia first division side, Partizán Bardejov, in Poprad this evening.

The team is in Slovakia for a two-week training camp to sharpen players’ skills ahead of their qualifying encounter against Banyana Banyana of South Africa. The qualifier is billed for the National Stadium on August 30.

While in Slovakia, Botswana would play three games against the host’s best teams.

Performance in today’s game will be used to determine Botswana’s readiness for the qualifying games.

Partizán Bardejov won double in 2016-17; the first division league and Slovak Women’s Cup.

Botswana prides itself with cable players likely to humble the talented hosts.

The likes of Lesego Radiakanyo, Masego Montsho, Refilwe Tholakelo, Nondi Mahlasela, Thuto Ramafifi and Kesegofetse Mochawe are some of Botswana’s best.
