Following the draw on Sunday afternoon at the Sam Nujoma Stadium, coach Bobby Samaria rues the missed chances by the Brave Warriors after a dominant display.

“First half, we ran at them and we had chances to score. The same story second half which we did not convert and I guess luck was not on our side today but we managed the game very well”, Samaria states.

The coach adds that the introduction of Gustav Isaacks was to unlock the Comoran defensive play.

” We had to try and get around them and the changes we madewith Image can dribble and he did very well but again our final ball was not perfect”, Says Samaria.
