Lesotho Football Association (LeFA) Media Officer, Mikia Kalati said this is the first camp for the senior national women's football team in the new year, adding that Khojane continues to cast his net wider with several new faces in the squad.
He said in their last camp held in December, the coach included seven new players in his squad and has now added three more.
Kalati said Khojane has shown that his door remains open for players that will impress his technical team in the ongoing Women's Super League campaign as well as other Women's competitions.
“Our door is open for new talent in the team, and I will continue to watch more games to find more players that will strengthen the pool that we already have,” Khojane said.
He could, however, not be drawn to announce the international games Mehalalitoe would play this year, adding they would be announced in due course.
