… NFA president says underestimating wounded Uganda would be ‘suicidal’
By John Tuerijama
NAMIBIA Football Association (NFA) President, Frans Mbidi, says the Brave Warriors team, which is off to flying start in the Morocco-hosted African Nations Championship (CHAN) finals, following a 1-0 Group B victory against Ivory Coast, will be taking it “one match at a time”, as their next priority is to see off a wounded Uganda, who lost their first match 3-1 against Zambia.
Tears of joy were evident across country this past Sunday, as the warriors stunned the continent, as they swept aside the Indomitable Lions in Marrakech.
Namibia secured a late victory through central defender Charles Hambira, to move to second in their group, with only Zambia’s superior goal difference shading them, for now. Mbidi, who is in Morocco, said that he is very excited about the manner in which the Brave Warriors’ defenders kept Ivory Coast at bay, which augurs well for Thursday’s clash with Uganda and the final group match against Zambia on 22 January.
