WINDHOEK, 03 JAN (NAMPA) - The assistant coach of the Ghanaian national football team has complimented Namibia for the great facilities provided to them during their preparation for a match against Namibia’s Brave Warriors here on Saturday.
Maxwell Konadu told Nampa on Friday that they are enjoying their stay at the Windhoek Country Club and Resort, and they are impressed with the good training pitch at the Independence Stadium, where the friendly match will take place on Saturday.
He said they want to put in practice what they have learned thus far, adding that his team is a “small one” and most of the players are new, but the match will serve as a test to the players and the whole team.
“I know it is going to be a tough match, but it will help us in future, because whatever happens will serve as a test and a teaching to us,” said Konadu, a retired Ghana international football player.
He noted his excitement for the match, and assured all football supporters in Ghana that they are not going to disappoint them.
On his part, Brave Warriors coach Ricardo Mannetti told this agency on Thursday they are ready for the match and are expecting a win.
“I am a winner, and I always prepare my team to win,” he said.
Mannetti, a former Brave Warriors midfielder, said there are some new players now, as most of his regular players, including team captain Ronald Ketjijere, are not available for this encounter.
The friendly match will kick off at 17h00.
