Namibia's Brave Warriors taking local Black Stars friendly seriously

Published on: 03 January 2014

Namibia defender Da Costa Angulan says he is looking forward to facing Ghana for the first time.

The Black Africa skipper was not part of the Warriors’ last game against Mozambique

The defender, who captained the team at the Cosafa Cup last year, is likely to again take up the leadership of the team.

''We are taking the match seriously,” he told Namibia Sun said when asked if the nature of the game would change, considering that Ghana is without its superstar professionals.

''For me, it is the first time playing against Ghana and I am looking forward to the first [Brave Warriors] game of the year.''

Maritzburg United midfielder Heini Isaacks is also available.

The playmaker was injured prior to the friendly against Mozambique and was thus not called up but he insists his return should not draw attention away from the rest of the team.

“[This game] is not about me. It is about the unity the team has been showing during the course of the week,” he said before adding that tomorrow’s game would be a test for the Warriors.

“It is a challenge for us to play Ghana but it is a test we are really up for,” he said.
