Windhoek - Namibia’s Brave Warriors are two games away from qualifying for the second consecutive Confederation African Football (CAF) African Nations Championship (CHAN) by tackling Mozambique in a two legged qualifiers.

The first leg will be played in Maputo on 22 September, while the return leg will be played in Windhoek on 24 September.

The winner of the two-legged tie will progress to the CHAN finals to be played in Cameroon in 2020.

The Brave Warriors left for Maputo on Wednesday knowing that a positive result away before the return leg next week will set them on course to qualify for their second consecutive CHAN tournament.

“Just like we did with Comoros and Eritrea away from home, we need to continue that kind of start and finish the job at home.

“We have the players to do so and again we bank on them to make the work easy for us as coaches. We have so much talent and it’s all about finding the right balance,” interim coach, Bobby Samaria, said.

Mozambique are ranked 116, while Namibia are ranked 121 in the FIFA rankings but Samaria said the rankings won’t matter on the pitch.

‘They had a good campaign during the AFCON qualifiers. They are ranked higher than us and that gives them motivation but we have the right to get the good result and we are capable of that. I just hope the boys will have the same hunger and determination they have showed thus far,” he said.
