The Brave Warriors touched down in Moroni on Saturday afternoon to prepare for the 2017 CAF African Nations Championship (CHAN) qualifiers third round first leg match slated for the Stade de Moroni on Sunday.

Ahead of training session, Brave Warriors captain Ronald Ketjijere says the team is here to do the job and remain focused on getting a favorable result.

“The weather is humid and hot just like in West Africa and we have travelled there a lot and so I think the boys will acclimatize very well and we will now have to see the pitch and get ready for tomorrow. We remain rooted on the job at hand and we want to make Namibians and ourselves proud on Sunday”, explains Ketjijere.

The match will be played on Sunday, at the Stade de Moroni, 13h00, Namibian time South African match officials led by referee Chris Harrison.
