Likuena match against Zim exposed gaps

I watched our national football team, Likuena, play against Zimbabwe in the Cosafa tie in Harare on Monday.
Although we held the Warriors to a 2-2 draw, there are many things that I think our coach should correct before our next match.
I was not happy with the fact that our players kept on losing ball possession in the middle of the pitch.
I think the biggest culprit was Molefe Lekokoe.
When the coach introduced Moleko one could see that there was some urgency in our play when we were attacking.
I would like to congratulate the coach for making that brilliant substitution.
I also noticed that the marking and clearances from our defenders were not convincing at all and I pray that the coach will make the necessary changes before our next game.
Were it not for our goalkeeper’s brilliance, we could have lost the game by a wide margin.
However, there are some positives that I observed during the game.
The trio of Khoto, Lefty and Sello had a good game.
I have doubts however about Sello’s discipline.
There was no need for him to step on the Zimbabwean player as the ball was clearly out of play.
The boy should consider himself lucky that he was not carded.
If Sello can work on that aspect of his game I am sure he can really go places because he is a very good player.
I was also worried over the continuing confusion over our national flag.
The television station kept on using the old and new flags interchangeably.
I also have a suggestion to people who run the sports show on Lesotho television.
They should make the programme interactive by having a studio telephone number and e-mail so that viewers can take part.
