Brave Warriors to start training for Madagascar match

Brave Warriors technical team has announced a 23 member team to start preparations for the second leg of the final round of the 2020 CAF African Nations Championship (CHAN) qualifiers scheduled for 19 October at Sam Nujoma Stadium.

The players were announced by the Namibia Football Association (NFA) Communications Officer Dan Kamati via a WhatsApp message to the media on Saturday, saying the team will start preparations on Monday at the Technical Center.

The team sees the return of injury-prone Wangu Batista Gome, who was recently released by Cape Umoya following a one-season spell which was disrupted by a long term knee injury.

Gome has missed the Africa Cup f Nations in Egypt in June/July this year and the Chan finals in January 2018 in Morocco.

Below are the 23 players called up for the match

Ratanda Mbazuvara, Charles Uirab, Kamaijanda Ndisiro, Calvin Spiegel, Pat-Nevin Uanivi, Ivan Kamberipa, Obrey Amseb, Marcel Papama, Gustav Isaak, Larry Horaeb, Aprocious Petrus, Immanuel Heita, Dynamo Fredericks, Wangu Gome, Vitapi Ngaruka, Emilio Martin, Wendell Rudath, Llewelyn Stanley, Absalom Iimbondi, Gregory Auchumeb, Panduleni Nekundi, Elmo Kambindu and Mapenzi Muwanei.
