WINDHOEK, 16 FEB (NAMPA) - Black Africa Football Club (FC) drew against South Africa’s Kaizer Chiefs by one goal to one at the Independence Stadium in Windhoek on Saturday.
The match was the second leg of the two teams’ Confederation of African Football (CAF) Champions League preliminary rounds.
Black Africa (BA) lost 3-0 to Kaizer Chiefs in the first leg of the preliminary rounds in South Africa last weekend.
Although BA got the opportunity to score first, their shots were not strong enough to penetrate the Chiefs’ goal posts, and Kaizer Chiefs forward Kingston Mkhatha placed his team ahead seven minutes into the first half.
Chiefs led 1-0 at half-time.
Both teams seemingly returned to the field with new tactics. Chiefs controlled the game in the first 10 minutes of the second half, but BA’s players were determined and they soon took control.
A few minutes into the second half, Willy Stephanus saved his team from another goalless defeat and the match ended in a one-all draw.
Speaking to members of the media shortly after the match, BA coach Brian Isaacs said his players performed well, adding that he hopes they will transfer their knowledge into the Namibia Premier League (NPL).
“Now we can come back and use the experience and knowledge that we got from playing against Chiefs,” he said.
Isaacs thanked the supporters for attending Saturday’s match.
The fully packed stadium did not let the Namibian players down and it was evident that Black Africa had their full support throughout the game.
