SINGAPORE - Botswana will play at the Oct 20-26 M1 Nations Cup at the OCBC Arena after making a late U-turn, organisers announced on Friday afternoon (Oct 18).

The southern African team, one of the six teams for the invitational tournament, had pulled out on Friday morning due to "unforeseen circumstances".

Botswana are scheduled to play the Cook Islands in their opening fixture on Sunday.

The other teams in the tournament are hosts Singapore, Ireland, Namibia and Papua New Guinea.
