… Daunting task ahead to book place at African Women Cup of Nations finals
By John Tuerijama
A daunting task is simmering on the horizon for the Brave Gladiators, as they are pitted against Zimbabwe in their Total African Women Cup of Nations qualifier, with the home leg taking place between 30 March and 1 April at the Sam Nujoma Stadium.
The Namibia Football Association (NFA) Women Department and interim coach Brian Isaacs faces an uphill battle early in the year, to rope in the best possible squad to take their Zimbabwean counterparts by the horns.
In an interview with Confidente this week the Head of the NFA Women Department, Jacky Gertze, said that the bulk of the players, who will be called up for trials, will come from the eight teams that competed in the 2017 NFA Women Super Cup, won by Nampol, who defeated Tura Magic by 2-1 in the final played at the Legare Stadium in Gobabis late last year. Gertze also said that the bulk of the other players will come from the national under-20 women’s team, who during the curtain raiser of the Dr Hage Geingob Cup beat their senior counterparts by a solitary goal at the Sam Nujoma Stadium.
