SWAKOPMUND: Namibia’s Brave Gladiators lost 1-2 to the visiting German Westphalia women’s under-18 team at the Swakopmund Sports Complex yesterday.

The senior Namibian women’s football team won the previous encounter between the two teams at the Sam Nujoma stadium in Windhoek on Friday by one goal to nil.

Namibia’s Zenatha Coleman scored the only goal of that match.

Yesterday, the Germans were quick to settle in and defender Frederike Kempe scored the opener in the first-half.

Gladiator Thomalina Adam equalised in the second-half, but soon after Germany’s Jennifer Stenbruck put her team ahead from a brilliant shot outside the edge of the box to put the score at 2-1 full-time in favour of the visiting team.
