Last year, Mbabane Swallows FC was the first football club to qualify for the group stages of the TOTAL CAF Confederation Cup and their heroics in African football continued this past weekend when they became the first local side to qualify for the group stages of the supreme inter- club competition (TOTAL CAF Champions League) in Africa. They did so at the expense of Zanaco FC from Zambia whom on paper were expected to qualify after eliminating them by an aggregate score of 3-1 after the local football club won in Zambia by 2-1 before winning its local match against the Zambians by an odd goal.
Football being the beautiful game is won by creating and converting your chances and this is what Mbabane Swallows FC did. This success brought smiles to the nation at large and this will definitely enhance our football brand as some of the players competing in this competition are also playing for the senior national team of which they will be of great value when it comes to international football.
Once again, we salute you Maswaiswai and all the best as you continue with your heroics in Africa on behalf of the Kingdom of Swaziland.
