Eswatini are holding a preparatory camp ahead of the COSAFA Cup, with coach Dominic Kunene calling up 28 players to attend.
The training camp will last for nine days at the technical Centre in Lobamba and is seen as ideal preparation for both the 2021 COSAFA Cup, as well as the kick off of the 2023 African Nations Championship qualifiers.
It is hoped that Eswatini will be able to pay an international friendly at the end of the week, although this has yet to be finalised by the country’s football association.
Their last outing was a 1-1 draw away at Senegal at the end of the Africa Cup of Nations qualifiers that came as a major boost to Sihlangu’s confidence.
