Namibia beat Seychelles 4-2 in their second Cosafa Castle Cup match at the Kholoma Stadium in Lusaka today, a win that now move them into the quarter-final stages of the regional  competition.

The score was 2-all at the break and Namibia got their goals via Ananias Gebhard who netted twice, while Sadney Uri-khob and Neville Tjiueza were also on target in an exciting encounter.

The game had the handful spectators who gathered on the edges of their seats as it produced many chances which the young players failed to convert.

Namibia could have won the match by a larger margin, but wastefulness and a lack of composure infront of goal let them down.

Namibia’s defender Ananias Gebhardt was voted as the Man of the Match and he said they were ready to take on any opponent.

“We got the three points that we needed and we are ready to take up the challenge against South Africa,” says the hard-tackling Gebhard.

The Namibians will now meet South Africa in a quarter-final encounter on Sunday.

Namibia started their campaign in blistering form under their local coach Ricardo Mannetti, when they dismissed Mauritius 2-1 in their opening encounter at the same venue on Saturday.
