Ngele back for Botswana

Botswana have recalled striker Mogakolodi Ngele to their squad for weekend African Nations Cup duty in Uganda.

Ngele was missing last month when Botswana finished fourth at the Cosafa Cup in neighbouring South Africa.

Botswana open their Group D campaign with an away game in Kampala on Saturday afternoon.

“We are going to Uganda with a positive mindset, we will though still be cautious at the back, be a bit defensive and maybe catch them on a break,” coach Peter Butler told a press conference.
