Maova and Gome join training camp

Edward Maova has joined the Brave Warriors training camp at the Sam Nujoma Stadium after his two-year contract with South African based team AmaTuks was terminated.

The 24-year-old Maova who has in recent years became a regular for the national team returned to Civics as a free agent following his stint with the South African side.

According to the information on the NFA website, Wangu Gome is also expected to feature for the Brave Warriors against Madagascar for the 2020 CHAN Qualifiers on Saturday at Sam Nujoma Stadium.

The stocky midfielder is back in action after healing from a knee injury.

Gome who also played for South African sides Bidvest Wits and Cape Umoya penned contract with Civics FC as well.

The midfielder last played for the national team in 2018 when Namibia took on Zambia for the 2019 AFCON Qualifiers in Windhoek.

Brave Warriors Interim Head Coach Bobby Samaria said after Monday's training session that the team is faced with a difficult task because of the goal they conceded in Madagascar.

However, Samaria added that 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.

Defender Larry Horaeb misses the match because of accumulated two yellow cards but the inclusion of Gome and Issackar Gurirab who was injured during the first leg will help shape the team.
