Buses Filled for Brave Warriors

More than 200 Namibians boarded government availed buses to go to and rally behind the Brave Warriors who face Mozambique in the final of the 2015 Cosafa Cup at the Moruleng Stadium, North West, on Saturday at 16h30 Namibian time.

Hordes of people started to gather around Football House on Friday morning as early as 07h00, to register their names for the trip which only required a valid passport and a minimum of N$300 pocket money.

The four buses were made possible by the government through the Ministry of Youth and Sport as the Brave Warriors made it to their third ever Cosafa Cup final, a first in 16 years.

Three buses departed from Windhoek while the other one from Gobabis, to much fanfare and overwhelming interest by Namibians. The fans will return back home immediately after the 2015 Cosafa Cup final match.

At Football House over 500 people registered and those left behind will be consoled with seeing their heroes on NBC TV 1 as well as pay TV Supersport on DSTV.

The Brave Warriors made sure of the final berth with a 3-2 win over Madagascar on Thursday night at the Moruleng Stadium, the winner coming seven minutes from time through a stunning shot by Peter Shalulile.

Coach Ricardo Mannetti says the team will do their best to overcome Mozambique and make the traveling fans and those back home proud as they deserve it.

“Going into tomorrow’s final, I’m not thinking of me at all. I’m at service to my country and I’m so honoured that I guided the team this far. It will be a special day for all Namibians as we will be united as a country in taking pride in our jewel, the Brave Warriors, after a long time of suffering”, Mannetti said. – nfa.org.na
