Lesotho is poised to reclaim the top spot in Group H as they prepare to face Rwanda’s Amavubi on Tuesday at 4 p.m. GMT. With a clear game plan, Coach Leslie Notsi is determined to secure a win for the Likuena.

Building on Momentum

Lesotho recently ended a string of draws with a decisive 2-0 victory over Zimbabwe, marking their first win in the current qualifying campaign.

This triumph has boosted the morale of the team, particularly for key players like Jane Thabantso.

The objective against Rwanda is straightforward: win to sustain and build on their newfound momentum.

“We’re going to try as hard as we can to adhere to all aspects of the game,” Notsi emphasized.

Preparing for a Challenging Opponent

Rwanda, on the other hand, is reeling from a 1-0 loss to Benin last Thursday, the first of a series of five matches without a win across all competitions.

This defeat has left the Amavubi wounded and desperate to redeem themselves.

Lesotho’s coach anticipates a fierce contest, noting the pressure his team will face from a determined Rwandan side.

“When we defend, we will stick to the tactical plan, we should be resilient, keep fit, and absorb any pressure that comes our way,” Notsi explained.

He acknowledged the challenge posed by Rwanda, describing them as “wounded tigers” ready to fight back hard.

“They are going to make our lives difficult. But we have to defend against the pressure they bring. We should not put ourselves under pressure.”

Tactical Focus

Notsi’s strategy hinges on disciplined defending and maintaining composure under pressure.

By focusing on resilience and tactical adherence, he believes Lesotho can neutralize Rwanda’s efforts and capitalize on their vulnerabilities.

The upcoming match, held in South Africa, is the first-ever encounter between these two national teams, adding an extra layer of intrigue and intensity.

Eyes on the Prize

With the stakes high and the opportunity to climb to the top of Group H, Lesotho’s approach will be crucial.

A victory would not only confirm their potential in the qualifiers but also set a positive tone for the remaining fixtures.

Notsi’s clear tactical vision and the team’s readiness to implement it will be key to overcoming Rwanda and moving closer to World Cup qualification.

As the match approaches, fans and analysts will be watching closely to see if Lesotho can execute Notsi’s game plan and secure another vital win on their path to the 2026 World Cup.
