Brave Warriors Coach Bobby Samaria reveals that the spirit is high in the team ahead of their international friendly match against South Africa on Thursday in Rustenburg. The match will kick off at 19h00.
The Brave Warriors jetted out with local-based players and they were joined in Johannesburg by the professionals before the three hours drive to Rustenburg.
The coach explains that the team harmony is encouraging with the professionals blending in well.
“We had a good 45 minutes in the morning and the boys are settling in well. The professionals are in top shape and as usual Peter Shalulile is leading the charge with his energy”.
Samaria further explains the team selection.
“We decided to focus only on the players in the region because of the travelling challenges from around the world as part of the necessary precautions to combact Covid-19 in various countries”, Samaria states.
The coach also explains Deon Hotto’s omision from the final team despite being based in South Africa.
“Hotto is currently rehabilitating an injury and was not considered for this game. He remain a key player for us but we need to respect protocols in place”.
Samaria will name his match day team tomorrow afternoon ahead of the clash that comes in handy ahead of the November AFCON qualifiers.
