Former University of Pretoria Football Club’s glovesman Edward Maova joined the Brave Warriors training camp this week after his two-year contract with the South African based team came to an end.
The 24-year-old Maova, who has in recent years, become a regular for the national team, returned to Civics FC.
The Namibian Football lovers can also expect to see football sensation Wangu Gome in action this coming Saturday at the Sam Nujoma Stadium when the Brave Warriors take on Madagascar for the second leg of the 2020 CHAN Qualifiers final round match.
The talented midfielder is back in action after healing from a knee injury and the former Bidvest Wits and Cape Umoya midfielder has also signed with Civics FC.
Gome last played for the national team in 2018 when Namibia took on Zambia for the 2019 AFCON Qualifiers in Windhoek.
After today’s morning training session Brave Warriors Interim Head Coach Bobby Samaria said that the team is faced with a difficult task because of the goal they conceded in Madagascar but the boys are on track and they are eager and willing to do better this time around.
“The boys really did well in Madagascar but the finishing is a serious concern, we created chances but couldn’t score. This week we have been focusing on finishing and scoring goals and we hope by Saturday that the boys will be well composed and not rush”, said Samaria.
Samaria added that the team will have to do without key player, Larry Horaeb because he obtained two yellow cards but the addition of Wangu Gome and Issackar Gurirab who was injured during the first leg will help shape the team.
Match tickets are selling for N$30 in advance at Football House in Katutura and from all Computicket outlets countrywide and they will be N$50 at the gates on match day.
