WINDHOEK, 24 JAN (NAMPA) - Deputy Minister of Sport, Youth and National Service, Agnes Tjongarero has called on the Brave Warriors to be at their best when they face Morocco in the African Nations Championships in Casablanca on Saturday.
In a media statement issued by the Namibia Football Association Tjongarero, who has been in Morocco cheering on the team since the tournament started, praised the teams efforts so far.
The team will have to do their utmost on Saturday. There is nothing in this world that you can do more than your best and this team has proven that so far, the deputy minister was quoted as saying in the statement.
She added that she was impressed by the Brave Warriors performance in the championship and believes that even though Morocco is playing at home, the Namibians could surprise the hosts.
Tjongarero called on the Brave Warriors to concentrate on their game and shut out the noise from the stands.
The deputy minister, who was set to fly back to Namibia on Wednesday, told the team she will watch Saturdays match on television and will be cheering the team on.
Morocco will be under pressure to win at home, so it will be an interesting game and I will watch with keen interest, she said at the team hotel in Casablanca.
She added that a lot of work needs to be done to prepare the team.
The players and the technical team are working very hard together but they need government support. In an ideal world the team should have a psychologist, a chef, a dietician and other specialists with them so they are well prepared for all situations, she said.
Tjongarero said the technical team is overworked as they have to carry out all these duties.
