With the Brave Warriors to host Malawi on 23 March, local-based Warriors went through a Biokinetic testing at the NFA Technical Centre.

According to the acting head coach of the Brave Warriors Bernard Kaanjuka, 21 local players underwent the test on Tuesday and Wednesday at the NFA Technical Centre to detect any injuries and allow the Technical team to make informed decision on their inclusion for future national team duties.

“The test was done by professionals from the Biokinetic. This is a practice done fro the first time in Namibia and will give us an indication on how good our players are conditioned and whether
they are eligible for selection or not. I will receive the results end of this week”, says Kaanjuka.

He explains further: “Players that will be selected will not hide their injuries anymore and they will be fit enough and the technical team can now concentrate on the tactical preparations instead of try to get them fit for the match. Players that will fail the test will not be eligible for selection for the future.

This message goes to all the players that they should look after their conditioning themselves, but they should not wait for one day to call up, because they will not be selected”.

Mots of the local-based players that attended the test are in the running for places for the Warriors’ team that will play Mozambique in the CAF African Championship qualifier in later this year.

Due to this process, the Brave Warriors training squad for the 2014 FIFA world Cup qualifier match at the Independence Stadium against Malawi on 23 March will be “announced on Monday”.

The Namibia Football Association (NFA) paid for the test and the coach says “It is a very expensive exercise but it is worthwhile.”
