Young Zebras coach names his provisional squad

Botswana Under-17 coach Tebogo Mokute has named his squad for AUSC Region 5 tournament that will be held in Gaborone from December 6-16.

There are a few new additions but majority of them featured in this year’s COSAFA under-17 that was held in Mauritius early this year.

Mokute was worried about his team preparations because his players are students and currently writing their final examinations and it is not easy for them to report for camp.

“We have rectified our goal scoring now as I have included three of our deadly strikers who are the future Zebras players. My aim is to reach knockout stages then take it from there,’’ Mokute said

Botswana is in Group A and has been drawn against Zambia, Eswatini and Namibia. Group winner and runner up will proceed to the semi finals.
