National under-20 out of youth qualifiers

The national under-20 football team bade their chances of playing in the African Youth Championship qualifiers farewell when they crashed out against Rwanda by 2-1.
A fortnight ago, Namibia went down to the same opponents at the Sam Nujoma Stadium by 2-0, even though the local national side had numerous chances when they hosted Rwanda at the Sam Nujoma Stadium.
The 2-1 defeat signalled Namibia’s exit and crushed down their dreams of making it to the African Youth Championship finals.
In an earlier interview with The Villager Sport, head coach Ricardo Mannetti said that there are going to be tactical changes and new players will be introduced to the first 11 who played Rwanda in the home leg.
This did not help as the Rwandese who have been playing together for some time now, outclassed the Namibians who have only recently been assembled in both legs.
