2022 WAFCON: ‘It Is Possible To Beat Super Falcons’  —Botswana FA President

President of the Botswana Football Association MacLean Letshwiti says his country’s women’s national team, The Mares, can defeat the Super Falcons in Thursday’s Group C tie.

Debutants Botswana kicker off their campaign with a 4-2 win against Burundi in Group C on Monday while the Falcons lost 2-1 to South Africa.

A win for Botswana against the Falcons, who were lackluster against South Africa, would guarantee qualification into the quarter-finals.

And looking ahead to the match, Letshwiti called on his compatriots to rally behind the team believing they can achieve the impossible.

“Let me congratulate The Mares for putting an excellent shift at work, defeating Burundi by a convincing 4 – 2 score line at the ongoing Wafcon Tournament here in Morocco,” Letshwiti said in a post published in Botswana FA’s Facebook page.

“The Ladies’ thrilling performances (against Burundi) demonstrated beyond doubt that together we can achieve. I therefore humbly urge the Ladies to continue to show their mettle against the best in Africa. A re kgotetseng!

“Further, I wish to also thank the people of Botswana back home for their well wishes and their patriotic spirit, rallying behind this exciting team.We are more than excited about your collective support. Let’s rally more and more behind The Mares especially in the second match which is a critical encounter in the tournament with its associated pressure and international focus now squarely on The Mares.

“Nelson Mandela once said; ‘it is impossible until it is done.’

“Let’s go out once more and do it again. It’s possible!”

Meanwhile, in Monday’s second round of games in Group A, hosts Morocco and Senegal qualified for the round of eight.

      Honestly all thanks to an old problem called A Lack of Preparation when will our football administrators learn.

        There’s no “lack of preparation” different from South Africa’s or most of the other teams at WAFCON. You folks forget that most of these players play in clubs who’s domestic season just ended in late-May or in June. Except for teams with most of their players based at home, ALL of the other teams were constrained by the FIFA Calendar (and FIFA requirements of releasing players only 2 weeks to a tournament). Nigeria was NOT the only WAFCON team affected.

      It’s football and anything can happen on the pitch, and of course we should humbly respect all of our opponents, but some of you seemed to have forgotten that the Falcons similarly lost to South Africa in a group game on our way to WINNING the last WAFCON trophy in 2018! A tournament is like a marathon, not a sprint. It’s not how you start but how you finish.

      So, while I respect the Botswana Mares, if I was a betting man I would still put my money on the Falcons to serve them pepper!
