Botswana and Taiwo

1st question, how good are Botswana? I lived there for about 5 years and at the time I was quite young, so I don't recall much about their soccer ability.

2nd question, how is Taiwo doing this year? I haven't seen much of him at all. A bit in the UEFA Cup, but that's about it.

Thanks for the replies.

1. I don't think that Botswana are very good to be honest. I think they are one of the lesser African nations when it comes to football.

2. Taiwo is doing good. He's a regular starter for Marseille, and he will be in the Nigeria squad for the ANC. He's on the right road.

Taiwo was my revelation of the recent youth WC in Holland. On which position does he play at Marseille, on the left-back or as a full-back?

What's the difference? I saw him as Marsielle's left back.

-Shame about Botswana, but not really surprising. This may be asking a lot, but do you happen to know who their best players are or what formation they play and with what players? Thanks a lot bro. If you know a site where I can find this info, feel free to post it.

Thanks for the replies guys.

Left-back indeed.

Same here, one of the best players of the tournament for sure!

Hopefully he'll have a great career!

Botswana is not that good. But we had a very good run in the past WC/ACN qualifiers - atleast by our standards. We almost made it into third spot but choked in the away games. Atleast we embarassed Malawi at their home ground.

I honestly don't see Botswana improving. Our youngsters are not that good. Plus the 1.5mil population is not in our favour
