REHOBOTH, 18 APR – Khuse Football Club coach Samuel Shaama has said they are ready to take the scalp of cup kings Black Africa in the Round of 16 of the Debmarine Namibia Cup.
The match is scheduled for 12h00 on Saturday at Walvis Bay’s Kuisebmond Stadium.
Speaking to Nampa on Tuesday, Shaama said as a coach it is a dream come true for him to play against Black Africa.
“This a dream come true as a coach, to meet the most successful team in Namibia. These are the type of games you envision as an upcoming coach and for our team it will be the biggest match so far, but we are ready to take the scalp of another great team,” he said.
He said the team will not be intimidated by the occasion and will play to proceed to the next round.
“Our aim is to win, no matter the opposition. One thing that will count in our favour is that we know how they play and we will use that knowledge to our advantage and beat them at their own game,” a confident Shaama said.
He further said one of their key defenders has a niggling groin injury and will be assessed before they travel to Walvis Bay on Thursday.
“We will see whether he will be able to play in a friendly on Wednesday before we travel to Walvis Bay on Thursday. We want to travel early and acclimatise at the coast,” Shaama said.
En route to facing Black Africa, Khuse won the Oshana Second Division play-offs and defeated Namibia Premier League team, Tigers in the Round of 32 via penalties.
The Round of 16 matches are scheduled to take place in Windhoek and Walvis Bay this coming weekend.
