WINDHOEK, 22 JUL (NAMPA) The senior national football team, the Brave Warriors, Monday received the code of conduct from the Namibia Sports Commission (NSC) to guide them at the African Nations Championship (CHAN).
Their first leg game against Comoros is set for Friday.
NSC Chief Administrator Freddy Mwiya told the team that in term of the Sports Act, Section 33 of 2003, every national team representing the country should be awarded national colours and a code of conduct to guide athletes behaviour.
You are our ambassadors, behave yourself, dont go there and embarrass the country, let us focus on this game and put AFCON behind us, said Mwiya.
Namibia dropped out in the group stages at AFCON held in Egypt recently.
Interim assistant coach Woody Jacobs speaking on behalf of head coach Bobby Samaria said from what he has seen in training, he is satisfied with the players fitness levels and the boys are eager to bring positive results from Comoros.
From what I have seen in training for the past few days, these boys are raring to go and I can assure you that we will come back with a victory from Moroni. This team is full of talent and that made it difficult to select the final team, said Jacobs.
The team will leave for Comoros on Monday with their game scheduled for Friday. The winner of the Brave Warriors versus Comoros match will take on the winner of Madagascar versus Mozambique in the third and final round of the qualifiers.
The final 20-man squad is as follows:
Ratanda Mbazuvara, Charles Uirab, Vitapi Ngaruka, Ivan Kamberipa, Emilio Martin, Approcius Petrus, Obry Amseb, Larry Horaeb, Gustav Isaak, Marcel Papama, Dynamo Fredericks, Gregory Auchumeb, Immanuel Heita, Stanley Llewelyn, Ukondja Kambindu, Isaskar Gurirab, Junias Theophilus, Revered Matroos, Absalom Iimbondi and Wendell Rudath.
