PIROS VISIT IMPROVES RESULTS
I’m told there has been a positive change ever since my visit to Seingwaeng Primary School sometime last year where I gave students a motivational speech on academics and sports.
The good news is that the final academic results have tremendously improved. As we speak the 2012 PSL results have shown that they have improved from 61.4% to 71.8%, a 14.4% improvement.
I will like to take this time to congratulate the entire Seingwaeng teaching staff and students for the hard work they have put in. Well done I am proud of you.
This weekend sees the start of the continent’s biggest football showpiece, the African Cup of Nations.
Here are my predictions from the group stages. I believe both Angola and Cape Verde will progress from Group A.
Group B, I see Ghana and Congo DR, Defending Champions Zambia and Nigeria will also progress from Group C while I strongly feel Algeria and Ivory Coast will also make it to the knockout stages.
I however put my money on Ghana to win the Cup.
Mochudi Centre Chiefs aka Maaparankwe and Gaborone United aka Moyagoleele square up this Friday night at the UB stadium in a Super Cup first leg encounter.
The tournament which will be staged annually involving two teams that have qualified for CAF competitions could not have come at the right time after such a long break from football action.
It is always a thriller when these two giants meet and I expect nothing less.
I know a lot of people will probably crucify me for saying that losing 0-2 to Angola last Sunday was not a terrible result; it could have been worse.
The team only had four days to prepare and considering that most players last saw action in December it was always going to be difficult.
Angola has a lot of professional players who have been active in their respective leagues and have been in camp to prepare for the AFCON finals.
Besides that they probably are of a better quality compared to our boys.
We can only build from there.
MY PLEA TO MAPOSA BROTHERS
Samuel and Simon Maposa are some of the most talented players in the country.
Gents I watched you play football some two weeks ago somewhere you and I know.
You guys are such a wonderful talent that can still make it in our league and anywhere else.
I am just pleading with you guys to find it in yourselves to find clubs locally and start afresh.
It’s never too late for anything. We all went through the same situation you are going through but we started again and here we are.
I hope to see you soon in the colours of any other team when the league resumes. Come on lads.
