GOBABIS, 02 DEC (NAMPA) – Preparations for the 2017 Debmarine Namibia Cup final are at an advanced stage, with organisers calling on all football fans to make their way to Gobabis to witness and epic clash between Young African and Mighty Gunners.
The match will start at 15h00 on Saturday at the Legare Stadium.
Namibia Football Association Secretary-General Barry Rukoro said only minor preparation activities were outstanding by Friday afternoon.
“We have done all we can at this stage and we are looking forward to a great final Saturday,” he told Nampa on enquiry Friday.
Meanwhile, Mighty Gunners coach, Gerhardt Hengari said his team is raring to go.
Speaking to this agency after his team finished their last training session at the Legare Stadium on Friday evening, he said there are no major injuries to report, except blisters suffered by the players from last weekend’s matches at the Sam Nujoma Stadium.
“That cannot be an excuse at this stage, we are soldiers and we will definitely fight Saturday like soldiers should. We want to win this cup final badly and the boys are raring to go,” he concluded.
Mali Ngarizemo, the coach of Young African, said two players had major injuries, but the medical team had declared them fit for the match.
“We are ready, we have been looking forward to this game for some time now. We are therefore calling on everyone to be in Gobabis for this event,” he said.
