Despite mixing experience with youth for the international friendly match against Lesotho on Tuesday night at the Sam Nujoma stadium, 20h00, the Brave Warriors will leave no stone unturned in their quest for victory.

Brave Warriors Assistant Coach Ronnie Kanalelo, who oversaw the training session on Monday morning says the team will always play to win and the friendly against Lesotho will be not friendly per say.

“We have a standard to maintain. We are playing at home and normally we play to win either home or away and more especially at home and we are still focused on that and on Tuesday night we have to make sure that happens. We have the youngsters included in the team and we need to give them time and see how things can go on the night”, Kanalelo explains.

The UNAM FC head coach adds that the Monday morning session was more about rehabilitation as the players just came back from a weekend of intensive Debmarine Namibia Cup last 32 Round.

“The players were involved in highly competitive football over the weekend and so this morning we took it easy and in the afternoon we will have the tactical session, more intense as we round up preparations for Tuesday night. Riaan Hanamub came back with a knock but we are confident he can be declared fit for the game on Tuesday”, Kanalelo states.

Match tickets are selling for N$ 40 each on Computicket outlets countrywide for the 20h00 kickoff match.
