THE Lesotho Football Association (LeFA) is determined to see Likuena resume training as soon as possible in preparations for the forthcoming African Cup of Nations (AFCON) qualifiers.

A LeFA delegation led by Secretary General Mokhosi Mohapi presented its case before the National COVID-19 Secretariat (NACOSEC) on Friday in a bid to return football activities in the country.
The association’s Communications Officer Mikia Kalati said: “NACOSEC appreciated our presentation and has now moved it to be presented to the ministerial subcommittee/task committee. Next week we will be invited to discuss the matter further with the NACOSEC’s technical committee so that the case could be given the green light.”

Kalati said they were in fact keen to see Likuena start training sessions on Sunday.
The NACOSEC team consisted of the Deputy Chief Executive Officer, the Chief of Staff, the Stakeholder Relationships Manager and two other officers.
Likuena are expected to face Benin in the back to back Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON) qualifiers in November.
