GABORONE Jordan 11 Retro For Sale , April 9 (Xinhua) — Botswana women national soccer team coach has said her charges are still in with a chance to qualify for the 2015 All Africa Games (AAG) despite trailing neighbors South Africa by a single goal from the first leg.
Gaolethoo Nkutlwisang told media on Thursday prior to her team’ s departure to South Africa for the second leg match that they are prepared to fight until the final whistle to get a good result. The two sides are scheduled to log horns in a deciding encounter at Dobsonville stadium in South Africa with the winner rewarded with a spot at the 2015 All Africa Games to be played in the Congo.
“We are going there to seek victory and proceed to the next round. We have all players fit for selection and the morale in the camp is high,” she said.
The coach said they learnt from their mistakes in the first leg match that they lost 1-0 at home and they will not repeat the same mistakes for the second leg, adding that their game plan is to unsettle the opponents with an early goal to bring the game to a balance so that both teams can play for a win.
She further said they will avoid by all means to play long balls as South Africa have aerial advantage to win all aerial battles as it happened in the first leg.
Meanwhile the coach cautioned South Africa is a very good side technically and they will have to approach the game cautiously.
“They have players who can dictate the game, they will play two to three short passes and play long balls and their players are very comfortable on the ball Jordan 1 Retro For Sale ,” she said.
Botswana had knocked off Madagascar on aggregate to reach the second and final stage of the qualifiers, a tournament they have never qualified for. The team has been in an intensive camp for the past two months, something the coach said helped them prepare adequately for the match.
