Brave Warriors coach Ricardo Mannetti will take 21 players to Manzini, Swaziland for a friendly match on Thursday as Tigers goalkeeper Immanuel Immanuel and Eleven Arrows’ Josef Ngifindwako are dropped ahead of the team’s departure on Wednesday afternoon.

Confirming the final travelling team, coach Mannetti states that he believes in the travelling team to go out there and spoil the party for Swaziland.

“We are going there to play football and our objective remains the same, to win every match we play. We have a lot of new players in the team and for the first time to play outside the country but they have to stand out and be counted. We continue to extend the pool of players for consideration and these players have the chance to impress”, Mannetti states.

From the initial 27 players called up on Monday, Vernon Klaasen, Kennedy Eib, Absalom Iimbondi and Panduleni Nekundi withdrew with injuries while Immanuel Immanuel and Josef Ngifindwako are dropped.

The match will be played on Thursday, 19 April, afternoon and the Brave Warriors will return home on Friday.
