Namibia: Martin Glad to Be Back With Warriors

Ramblers midfielder Emilio Martin says that he is back to stay in the Brave Warriors fold for many years to come. The lanky player reckons that he is more matured and experienced than before and has set his sights on taking his game to another level.

"My experience and maturity have made me realise that I need to play with the best payers in the land and I am really glad for this call-up to the national team as I have been waiting for this moment. I am here to stay," says Martin.

Martin, who last featured for the Warriors in their one-all draw against Botswana in March last year, during an international friendly, says: "I have been around the block for some time now, and I just thought it was time to take my football seriously and I have to say this season I have probably done that and have as well become a much better player over the years."

Martin, who once played under the mentorship of Warriors coach Bernard Kaanjuka in the U-20 and U-23 levels, added that he hoped their reunion would be perfect against Rwanda. "I know the coach, he knows me, so it's all up to me and my mates to help the team do well and hopefully win, which will really be a great gift to the Namibia nation."
