Mannetti : Namibia played well against Zimbabwe

Namibia head coach Ricardo Mannetti has expressed his delight after his side beat Zimbabwe 1-0 in a CHAN qualifier 1st leg tie. 

Hendrik Somaeb scored the all important goal early in the second half and despite spirited efforts by the Warriors to equalise the home side held on to clinch a win.

“I can’t be greedy and ask for more said Mannetti after the game. “ This victory was long overdue and when Somaeb scored, I prayed and hoped that Zimbabwe don’t spoil the brilliant goal and the memorable occasion for all of us.

“ We played well today and got the result, we now have to prepare for the second leg and again we remain underdogs and have to play above ourselves again like we did today.

“They (Zimbabwe) will be at home and have depth and we have to counter that he added.

The return leg is set for the 23rd of July at the National Sport Stadium in Harare.
