THE senior ladies soccer national side Mehalalitoe will before the end of the week know who their opponents are in the Council of Southern Africa Football Association (COSAFA) Women's Championship when the draw is conducted in Port Elizabeth, Eastern Cape.

Mehalalitoe have been featured in this year's edition of the COSAFA Championship scheduled for November 3 - 14 in Port Elizabeth.
According to the Lesotho Football Association (LeFA) Media Officer Mikia Kalati, the draw will enable the team to know as to the type of adversary to prepare for.

“The draw will also enable the newly appointed head coach Lehloenya Nkhasi to get to know his charges before the tournament. Nkhasi who has replaced Lire Phiri will be assisted by Moroesi Lazaro,” he said.
Kalati said both coaches have made a huge impact on local women's football, adding that Nkhasi previously led the LDF Ladies team to three successive Women's Super League titles as well as two Top 4 cups.
“They start with the assignment immediately and will lead the team at the upcoming COSAFA Women's Championship to be held in Port Elizabeth,” he said.

Nkhasi, he said has been appointed on a short contract which will be renewed based on the team's performance in the COSAFA Women's Championship.
Mehalalitoe have begun preparations for the regional event and are set to leave the country sometime next week.
The team has been inactive for almost seven months due to the COVID-19 pandemic, which led to the suspension of the sporting activities in Lesotho.
