The 2017 NFA Women Super Cup final will be an exciting affair as Tura Magic and Khomas NAMPOL meet at the Legare Stadium in Gobabis on Saturday, 13h00, with the Magicians being cautious and NAMPOL declaring their hunt for the first ever silverware at this level.

Tura Magic and Khomas NAMPOL will contest the final of the 2017 NFA Women Super Cup and there will be no love lost as the best attack of the former faces the best defence of the latter to determine who walk away with the trophy and N$ 20 000 richer.

Tura Match coach Shama Gure, speaking at a press conference on Wednesday morning at Football House was very cautious about his team’s chances.

“Whoever comes to Gobabis should prepare for beautiful display of football because the two finalists worked hard for it. Both sides earned their places in the final. A lot is expected from us as a team and we are a team that comes out to give our best. We work hard and play hard”, Gure said.

He added that that everyone is available for selection despite few knocks form the weekend and having captain Zenatha Coleman is a blessing.

“ Zenatha is a special player and she raised the standard and her leadership qualities has shown as she kept urging others to do well and she will have a major impact in the final game” said Gure of captain Coleman who missed the presser as she’s visiting her family in Keetmanshoop before coming back for the final.

Emma Naris, Magic’s Vice captain called on the public to come and see the best of women football and vows her team will be magical on the team. “Our tanks are ready for the final and we will show you the magic we have”, Naris proclaimed.

NAMPOL coach Novata Paulus revealed that they have not trained after their qualification to the final but that will not deter them from going all the way.
“ I have the captain of the National team Mamie Kasaona in defence and also Stella Williams in the team and we will be trouble for Magic. I have a player that will handle Coleman and come Saturday we will see how it goes”, Paulus stated.
NAMPOL captain Maggie Paulus would love to win the cup as they she will not want to explain to the regional Police hierarchy.

“ If we go and back without the cup, I will have an explanation to do to the regional commander and I’m not ready to explain and all I want is the trophy”, said Paulus.
