WINDHOEK, 12 FEB (NAMPA) – Kavango East Second Division outfit Kangweru Black Tops Football Club (FC) are confident of sinking Eleven Arrows in the 2015 Bidvest Namibia Cup round of 16.
The giant-killers beat Mighty Gunners on penalties after drawing one-all in the round of 32 to qualify for the next round of the competition, where they will meet the coastal team.
The public relations’ officer (PRO) of Kangweru Black Tops FC Michael Kampota told Nampa on Thursday that his side is ready to advance to the next round of the competition when they clash with Arrows.
“We have experienced the tactics of how the Namibia Premier League (NPL) teams are preparing for their games.
We also learned that they prepare well mentally, and we are ready for them,” he said.
Kampota noted that his team was excited, and it is their time to show the nation at large that football is just the same wherever you are playing it.
“The only difference is that we are a lower-division side, and we might not prepare as seriously as teams at NPL level.
We, however, play with love at heart. Let Eleven Arrows be prepared, we are coming to face them,” he stressed.
Kampota praised the Bidvest Namibia Cup competition for being a platform which is helping numerous youths to engage themselves in football, and so avoid being involved in other dubious activities on the streets.
Other fixtures of the Round of 16 which will be played in Walvis Bay and Windhoek are:
African Stars (defending champions) vs NamPol Omaheke
Young Chiefs vs Touch & Go
Swakopmund FC vs Citizens
Java-Java vs Orlando Pirates
Black Africa vs Rebels FC
Tigers vs Julinho Sporting
Blue Waters vs Unam
The quarter-finals are set for the weekend of 27 to 29 March, with the semi-finals scheduled for 24 to 26 April.
The final will be contested on 30 May at the Sam Nujoma Stadium.
Football fans can also win a ticket to watch England-based Sunderland FC’s match in that country.
Fans should enter their match tickets, their names and contact details on them to stand a chance of winning the prize.
The all-expenses-paid trip includes watching training sessions of Bidvest-sponsored Sunderland FC, as well as meeting their players.
