Samaria breaks the ice with Warriors

The Brave Warriors will have to keep the ball to see it though against Comoros Island on Sunday at the Sam Nujoma Stadium in their 2020 African Nations Championship qualifier second leg match.

The Brave Warriors takes a healthy 2-0 lead into their second leg match , which is a brilliant start for interim coach Bobby Samaria and he says the ice is broken.

We have finally broke the ice. The boys are so hungry to succeed. It's only half time for us and we expect Comoros to come out fighting. They can do what we did so we need to keep the ball and see this thing through, Samaria says at Tuesday morning training session.

The coach calls on fans to come in numbers to support the team.

It's a new chapter and the boys are determined to write their own history. They were more fitter than Comoros last weekend and they can only get better. We have not achieved anything yet but with the support of everyone we can push and succeed. So I urge my fellow Namibians to come and be with us on Sunday, Says Samaria.

Missing from training was first choice goalkeeper Raranda Mbazuvara who is attending to a family bereavement but will join this afternoon, while Petrus Shitembi and Wangu Gome are keeping fit ahead of the new season.

Samaria is working with about 30 players and will announce the match-20 on Thursday when they go into camp.

Tickets for the much anticipated return leg in Windhoek are selling on Computicket outlets for N$30 each in advance and N$50 at the gates. Tickets are also available at Football House in Katutura.

The overall winner will take on the winner of Madagascar versus Mozambique in the third and final round of the qualifiers.
