REHOBOTH, 14 NOV (NAMPA) – The Skorpion Zinc Namibia Football Association (NFA) Women’s Super League Round 7 matches will see a top of the table clash between log leaders Tura Magic and second-placed VPower Angels on Saturday.
The match is scheduled for 12h00 at the NFA Technical Centre in Katutura.
The two teams are tied on 16 points after six matches played and only separated by goal difference, with Tura Magic having scored a whopping 39 goals without conceding a goal, compared to Angels’ 11 goals scored and one conceded.
Tura Magic coach Shama Gure told Nampa on Wednesday they will go into the match without any pressure.
“Not that I want to sound arrogant, but we have been preparing well for this match and people cannot wait to see the outcome of the match as it is an exciting encounter. At the end of the day, it is a game of football and the team with a well-drilled tactical approach will win,” Gure said.
He said the coaching staff along with the management has calmed the nerves of the players going into this crunch match so they can be level-headed and accomplish what is at stake.
Gure said the experience of Brave Gladiators player, Thomalina Adams has been integral among the other players.
“Thomalina is a pillar of hope and strength and with her versatility she has been a key player. She is evergreen, is always naturally motivated and it has rubbed off on the other players,” Gure noted.
He said they aim for the maximum three points that will bring distance between them and the chasing pack.
On his part, Risto Shikomba, coach of VPower Angels, said they are targeting three points.
“I can promise that we will give good football. We have our national team player, Stacey Naris out after she was attacked but it will not stop us from winning the match.”
Naris suffered injuries in an apparent hijacking over the weekend.
He said they will count on Fiola Fliede who can on any day win a match on her own.
