WINDHOEK, 12 OCT (NAMPA) - Gambia aims to beat Namibia when the two national football teams meet in the second leg of the 2018 International Federation of Football Associations (FIFA) World Cup qualifiers here on Tuesday.
The two teams drew one-all in Bakau, Gambia last Friday.
Speaking to Nampa here on Monday, Gambian coach, Raoul Savoy said his team did not do well in the first encounter noting: “We had a poor game in the first leg, especially in the first half, but we managed to get a draw”.
He does not underestimate Namibia’s Brave Warriors but stated that they came here to win and qualify for the World Cup.
The Gambian coach travelled with the same 20 players who played Namibia in the first leg, except one player who is injured and is in hospital.
Gambia’s captain, Abdou Jammeh, who scored their goal in the 78th minute, told Nampa on Monday that all they need is to win, because this game mathematically belongs to either team. “We need to do better tomorrow,” he said.
Willy Stephanus scored for Namibia in the 64th minute.
The Tuesday game will commence at 16h00 at the Sam Nujoma Stadium.
