The Head coach of Namibia says they have not come to spoil Zambia’s party but to go the distance which is no longer realistic any more. Coach Bobby Samaria of Namibia was speaking during pre-match press conferences in Limbe as they prepared to face Zambia in their last group game of the competition.
It has been a CHAN to forget for the Namibia side as they have been beaten in all their encounters. The team was beaten 3-0 in their first encounter against Guinea. They lost 1-0 to Tanzania in a game that they had to avoid defeat. That defeat against Tanzania all but eliminated the side from the competition.
“We have to try to score a goal and also try not to concede against Zambia. This game allows us to correct our mistakes once again. The literature is very simple, to go out without any pressure and play with aim of getting a positive result,” Namibia Coach Bobby Samaria said.
“Any football game including friendlies have a role to play with reasons. This is a competition and our last game in the tournament. It might be perceived to be of no significance. We take solace in this game as Zambia is our neighbours. The objective of every game is to win. We started on the slow side. After the first game, the team has improved. We need to get a goal and avoid conceding,” Bobby Samaria added.
This will not be the first showdown between Zambia and Tanzania in the CHAN tournament. In 2018, both sides met each other and the game ended 1-1. The Namibians will certainly hope that luck will be on their side when they face Zambia. The team has not scored any goal in the ongoing competition and has conceded four goals. They are going to finish bottom of Group D with a draw, loss or victory against Zambia.
