The Senior Women’s National Team (Sitsebe SaMhlekazi) is currently in camp preparing for the upcoming COSAFA Women’s Championships to be held in Zimbabwe. This competition will be played between the 13th-23rd September 2017.
The Head Coach of the national team, Mduduzi Nxumalo, highlighted that so far their preparations are going very well however; one player by the name of Welile Nxumalo is attended assessed by the medical team as she had a knock during one of the training sessions. “The is progress in as far as the fitness level of the players is concerned, however, we have to put more effort on the psychological aspect of the players”, he said. He also mentioned that defensively, the national team is improving even though they have to work on the transition play as in the game of football; matches are won by scoring goals.
Sitsebe SaMhlekazi is training three (3) times per day as a way of intensifying their preparations. The National Football Association of Swaziland (NFAS) urges the nation more especially the corporate sector to support the Senior Women’s National Team as we recognize the Women’s month in order for them to maximize their preparations so that they increase their chances of representing the country very well during the tournament. The support can either be financially or materially as the national team needs a lot of water, energy drinks, allowances and meals just to mention a few for the duration of the training camp and the competition itself.
