Gome and Maova join Warriors for Madagascar clash

Former University of Pretoria Football Club glovesman Edward Maova joined the Brave Warriors training camp at the Sam Nujoma Stadium in Windhoek this week after his two year contract with the South African based team was terminated.

The 24 year old Maova who has in recent years became a regular for the national team returned to Civics and is blending well with the team after being absent for a while.

The Namibian Football lovers can also expect to see Wangu Gome in action this coming Saturday at the Sam Nujoma Stadium when the Braves take on Madagascar for the 2020 CHAN Qualifiers that will be hosted in Ethiopia.

The talented midfielder is back in action after healing from a knee injury and the former Bidvest Wits and Cape Umoya midfielder is also signed with Civics FC and is adjusting well at training.

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, says Samaria.

Samaria adds 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.
