front Warriors 26 juneThe secretary general of the Namibia Football Association (NFA) expects the Brave Warriors to perform well in the Cosafa Castle Cup to be played in Lusaka, Zambia from 6-20 July.

Berry Rukoro said “we do not expect Brave Warriors to perform weaker than they did against the African champions, Nigeria”, in the African World Cup Qualifiers.

A total of 13 teams will battle it out in the famous Cosafa Castle Cup that was launched in Windhoek on Wednesday.

The winning team will walk away with N$500,000 while the runners-up will take home a total of N$250,000 and the third place team will be compensated with N$125,000 for its efforts.

In addition, the fourth placed team will be rewarded N$100,000 and the top goal scorer, player of the tournament and the goalkeeper will each walk away with N$10,000.

Namibia’s Brave Warriors have been drawn in Group A with Mauritius and lowly ranked Seychelles. The Warriors have done well in previous Cosafa competitions after reaching the final and semi-final stages.

Pundits expect the Brave Warriors to do well given their performance in the last two matches under new coach Ricardo Mannetti.
