Players of Madagascar are ready to fight for the final tournament with Namibia.

ROYAL BAFOKENG: Madagascar coach Franck Rajaonarisamba says his players are ready to fight for a place in the final of the Cosafa Cup tournament when they clash with Namibia on Thursday.

Madagascar beat Ghana 2-1 at the Royal Bafokeng Sports Palace yesterday to qualify for the semi-finals of the 2015 Council of Southern African Football Associations (Cosafa) Cup.

The 2015 edition of the Cup is being played in the North West Province of South Africa.
