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.

BFA GRANTS AMROUCHE LEAVE OF ABSENCE

GABORONE, Botswana – Following the request by Senior National Team Coach, Adel Amrouche for leave of absence to attend to a personal matter, the Botswana Football Association (BFA) wishes to inform the public that he has been granted the leave with immediate effect.

Since the COSAFA tournament is the last competitive tournament for the Zebras in the immediate future, the BFA amicably resolved to release Amrouche. The affairs of the National team in preparation for the tournament, set to take place in Nelson Mandela Bay in South Africa from 7-18 July 2021 shall be handed over to Letang Kgengwenyane.

“The BFA understands and supports Mr. Amrouche’s situation and wishes him all the best in his future endeavours,” said BFA Chief Executive Officer (CEO), Goabaone G. Taylor.

Amrouche took over as the Zebras head coach in August 2019 on a two-year deal. After weeks of engaging with the coach over his future, an agreement was reached not to extend his contract.

“We appreciate all that Amrouche has done to build a disciplined team. He has always had a thorough understanding of what it takes to be a successful team and has done his best to mentor his players accordingly,” concluded Taylor.

Amrouche has since expressed gratitude towards the BFA for the opportunity.
