Namibia Coach Proud Of Team After Goalless Draw

The head coach of Brave Warriors, Collin Benjamin, says he is proud of his team for the performance they put up in the friendly game against Ghana at the Baba Yara Sports Stadium.

He observes that the team controlled the game in the 90 minutes despite a rise in Ghana’s enthusiasm in the second half.

The 45-year-old football manager recognizes this was done through communication and team spirit among his players on the field and thus characterized it as a “good game” despite squandering some goal chances.

Speaking to the media over his observation of the game, he said, “My team did a very good game. They did it as a collective, with a lot of energy, a lot of enthusiasm, a lot of conviction and I‘m just proud of the team. The first half I think we created really good chances that we could even go 2-0 in front.”

“I think second half also the tempo Ghana took it even further but I think that we contained them and the two, three chances that we also had that makes me just proud to be the coach of this team.”

Nambia, just like Ghana, is preparing for the 2023 Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON) to be held in Ivory Coast this month. They sit in Group E with South Africa, Mali and Tunisia.

They pitched their tents in Ghana in December for the pre-tournament camping.

Benjamin, a former national and international midfielder was appointed head coach of Namibia’s senior national team in 2022.
