Botswana national team coach Adel Amrouche has named a 25-man squad for the Africa Cup of Nations qualifiers against Zimbabwe on 15 November.

The selection has six foreign-based players including two from Europe – Mpho Kgaswane who is at Azerbaijani side Zirah FC and winger Kabelo Seakanyeng, from Malta’s Lijah Athletic.

The other four play in South Africa and these are TS Galaxy duo of goalkeeper Ezekiel Morake and Mosha Gaolaolwe, Mogakolodi Ngele of Black Leopards and Highlands Park’s Lesenye Ramorake.
