Post the game against Zambia we had to break our camp as players were going back to school to prepare for their end of term examinations. We however planned two weekend camps during the period between the Zambia game and the fulltime camp that commenced on the 17th November, 2017.
We do not know our opponents but we have an idea of how they approach their games. We are aware that South African players are not bad technically due to their advantage of training in better facilities than we do. Our plan is to use their strength to our advantage. How we are going to do it is for now a closed book.
We kept the same squad that was in camp during preparations for the Zambia game and reinforced it with Leungo Senwelo (AMF), Annah Sechane (MD/DF), Doris Motshegwe (GK) and Tshegofatso Mosotho (AM) to improve depth in the squad. (Refer list provided down below).
The focus of our training during the weekend camps was meant to keep the team’s fitness at least to a stable level until we resume the fulltime preparation camp for tomorrow’s game. Our preparations have also been going well during our fulltime camp except we could not get any international friendly game due to unavailability of teams in the region. All our players are mentally and physically ready and like prior to the Zambia game have been working hard to get ready for tomorrow’s game. We only have a few a few knocks which our doctors are taking care of.
With these few words, Ladies and Gentlemen, I am confident that shall compete and work hard to get positive results in tomorrow’s game. We also urge members of the Lobatse community and the country at large to support these girls tomorrow.
