Botswana head coach Major David Bright says his side won’t pass the ball like English Premier League (EPL) side Arsenal FC, who are one of the best ball playing teams in the world.
The Zebras are currently participating in the 2018 Castle COSAFA Cup in Polokwane, South Africa.
They held Malawi to a 1-1 stalemate on Wednesday night and the draw took them to the top of Group B standings.
This was their second game in the tournament having defeated Angola 2-1 in their first Group B match on Monday.
Bright is keen to guide the Zebras to the quarter-finals of the regional competition.
“These are group stages with only three games to play, so we need to grind the results and not go onto the field and pass the ball like Arsenal,” Bright said.
The Motswana tactician added that they go onto the field with an aim to score goals and defend as a unit.
“We are going onto the field with one thing in our minds and that is to score goals and defend as a unit.”
The Zebras will wrap up their group stage campaign against Mauritius on Friday. Only the group winners will advance to the knockout stages.
Zimbabwe are scheduled to face Group B winners in the quarter-final clash this weekend.
