THE Tafel Lager Brave Warriors are already in Lome for their second 2022 Fifa World Cup qualifier against Togo today Sunday September 5, 2021 at the Stade de Kégué, 16h00 (GMT).

Namibia drew their opening Group H game against Congo 1-1 in Johannesburg on Thursday and count themselves unlucky to have not taken all three points.

“We need to pick ourselves up in the shortest possible time and forget about the setback of not winning our first group match. We also lost a key player in a key department, but we nevertheless march on,” coach Bobby Samaria said.

First choice goalkeeper Virgil Vries missed the Congo encounter due to health protocols, with Lodyt Kazapua starting in goal and the next day Max Mbaeva joined the team in Togo.

“We welcome Max Mbaeva to the team and we are grateful that Golden Arrows released him on very short notice to replace a player who was ruled out of our first game due to health protocols,” Samaria said.

The team had a run-out on the beach upon arrival in Lome and had their only full training session at the match venue on Saturday.

As a reminder, The Togolese Sparrowhawks lost their first match against Senegal (2:0), on Wednesday.
