Brown geared for Likuena return
BOLIVIA based Lesotho international Thabiso Brown is looking forward to his return into the national team set up after a five-year absence.
Brown, who was playing for Pirata FC in the Peru Liga 2 last season was announced in Thabo Senong’s provisional squad which began its preparations for the Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON) qualifiers last month.
Likuena will play Sierra Leone before travelling to Nigeria later this month in their last two Group L matches.
Senong’s charges will face the Leone Stars on 22 March before travelling to Abuja, Nigeria seven days later for their return leg with the Super Eagles.
Lesotho is anchoring Group L with two points from four matches after drawing with Sierra Leone and Benin and also losing to Nigeria and Benin in both first leg matches.
The former Kick4Life striker told the Sunday Express on Friday that he was still waiting for the call-up letter but said he was happy to be considered for national duty.
“I am still waiting for the call-up letter but I was happy to learn that I am being considered,” Brown said.
“It has been too long since I played for Likuena and it will surely feel good to be back in the national team.”
He said he has been in constant communication with Senong and is looking forward to learn from him.
“We have been in contact with the coach and the team manager Ntate Lehlohonolo Matlosa. I am really looking forward to being part of coach Senong’s team and learn from him,” he said.
Brown said while he was happy to be in the national team, he was also happy to travel to Lesotho after such a long time.
“The coach has shown great interest in working with me soon and that boosts my confidence. It has also been long since I travelled back home, so I am pleased with the opportunity.”
Brown last played for Likuena under Moses Maliehe in 2015 before moving to Bolivia in 2016 where he has played for several teams.
