Namibia’s veteran goalkeeper Virgil Vries was on Saturday breathtakingly exceptional between the sticks as he kept a clean sheet to help his South African club Swallows FC secure a narrow but well-deserved 1-0 win over Baroka FC during their DStv Premiership clash at the Peter Mokaba Stadium in Polokwane. Youngsters Johannes Mutanga and Jonas Matias, who both recently received their first national team call ups to join the Brave Warriors in Cameroon for the ongoing African Nations Championship (Chan) finals, are relishing the opportunity and can’t wait to leave their footprints at the biennial tournament. Local football pundits have urged the national side to pick up the pieces and restore some lost pride following a dismal showing in their African Nations Championship (CHAN) opening match against Guinea on Tuesday evening in Limbe. Having been eliminated already from the ongoing African Nations Championship, the Brave Warriors will use their last group match against Zambia to improve on the team’s performance. Namibia’s U/20 national football side, the Young Warriors, were Monday drawn in Group B of the U/20 Africa Cup of Nations (Afcon), slated for Mauritania between 14 February and 4 March 2021. The Namibia National Olympic Committee (NNOC) on Friday announced that the Olympic Games, slated for Tokyo, Japan, will take between July and August place as planned, despite ongoing concerns around the effects of the Covid-19 pandemic. Netball Namibia (NN) will this week continue with its outreach programme to the Oshana, Ohangwena and Oshikoto regions, where the local netball governing body will assist the regions with setting up functioning regional leagues, establish inter-regional competitions and also oversee the election of executive committees for the respective regions. As Namibia’s Young Warriors embark upon their maiden campaign at the upcoming Africa U/20 Cup of Nations (Afcon) slated for Mauritania from 14 February until 4 March 2021, I would like to take this opportunity to wish the boys all the best of luck ahead of this important tournament. James Britz, the head coach of Namibia’s U/20 football side the Young Warriors, yesterday said their mission going to the upcoming Africa U/20 Cup of Nations (Afcon) is to leave a lasting impact at the youth tournament, which they plan to achieve by going all the way. President of the Namibia Basketball Federation (NBF), Nigel Mubita, has admitted that if Namibia does not seriously prioritise the construction of sport facilities at school and community levels, Namibia’s U/20 football side Young Warriors arrived safely in Mauritania’s capital city Nouakchott, where they will continue with preparations for their maiden appearance at the Africa U/20 Cup of Nations (Afcon), which starts this weekend.
