Namibia/Zambia: U-20 Ladies Clinch Women?s Super Cup ? Ready for Zone VI Games in Lusaka

Windhoek — The Namibian women's U-20 team came out tops when they gallantly won the NFA/DFB Women's Super Cup on Sunday at the NFA Technical Centre, to put a good start to their preparations ahead of the biennial Zone VI Games.

The Under-20 Zone VI team thrashed the 21 Brigade United 8-0 in the final match to secure the NFA/DFB Super Cup. The two sides reached the final courtesy of a narrow 1-0 victory over TISAN by United, while the U-20 team demolished Challengers 12-0 in the semi-finals.

Jackey Gertze who coordinated the tournament says they are impressed with the way things turned out during the four days of competition and are looking forward to the next assignments in women's football.

"We had four great days of exciting and competitive football, where all teams really played to their maximum. The interest that these girls showed was very impressive and it was a clear indication of how the game is growing in Namibia," said Gertze.

Gertze congratulated the winners, as they look ahead to the December Zone VI Games scheduled for Zambia. "The team really played well, their performance is highly commendable and a big applause also needs to go to their technical team for a job well done. Now we need to seriously kick-off with preparations for the Lusaka games," Gertze said.

The tournament was also used as an opportunity to continue with the NFA's annual Talent Identification Programme. The NFA has now selected a total of 35 players to increase the current number of players for the national team.

A training camp for the selected players is scheduled for the period November 18-28, 2012 and will be conducted by Jacqueline Shipanga and her assistants.
