Africa Cup of Nations - Group D - Botswana

Colours: Sky blue shirts with a white trim / black shorts / black socks
Capital: Gaborone
Population: 2,029,307

This is the first time that Botswana have qualified for the Africa Cup of Nations and they have never qualified for the World Cup. They have always been second best, but a particularly poor run of results saw them turn to Stanley Tshosane and results improved markedly with them becoming the first team to qualify for this tournament.

Star player: Jerome Ramalhakwanae

26 year old striker Ramatlhakwanae is currently without a club after leaving Brazilian giants Vasco de Gama. He signed from Santos, but was hindered by visa issues, he scored on his debut, but has since been released by the club.
