Brave Warriors head coach Ricardo Mannetti says the senior national side needs to remain consistent going forward in order to keep improving on the International Federation of Football Association (FIFA) rankings.
The recently released FIFA rankings saw Namibia move up seven places from 115 to 109 position in the world.
Mannetti told Confidente this week that playing regular international games, in particular against teams ranked above Namibia, was vital for the Brave Warriors to keep the momentum.
“The improvement is important especially for the players because it shows that they (players) are working towards something,” he said.
The latest FIFA rankings were based on the back-to-back international games held in the past months. Mannetti said Namibia’s objective was to reach the 90th position on the FIFA ranking.
Namibia’s previous best ranking was 94th and that the Brave Warriors head coach is confident that feat can be repeated, if not improved upon.
