The Brave Warriors are preparing for the 2021 African Nations Championship (CHAN) Finals to be held in Cameroon and Captain Dynamo Fredericks says the team’s spirit and tempo have been high since their return from the Coastal town of Walvis Bay, despite the infiltration of Covid-19.
Fredericks says the team has been pushing towards getting fit both physically and mentally to assure that their trip to Cameroon for the African Nations Championship (CHAN) is a memorable one.
“I have been pushing the boys to keep working hard and not despair because of the others who tested positive. I also constantly call the ones in isolation to motivate and encourage them to have faith and work towards fully recovering because we are all waiting for their return” he says.
CHAN competition kicks off on the 16th January, with the finals to be played on 7th February 2021 in Cameroon. Namibia’s first match is against Guinea on 19th January 2021 at the Limbe Omnisport Stadium and then take on Tanzania and finish against rivals Zambia in Group D.
As the Finals draw closer, Fredericks insists the Brave Warriors as a collective are ready.
“We are going to CHAN not to participate but to compete against the best, so we will go play to the best of our abilities to make the nation proud,”.
Fredericks urge fellow Namibians to adhere to Covid-19 regulations, practice social distancing and wear their masks at all times in order to combat the spread of Covid-19.
