This meant the team could not arrive to Namibia in time as it had been planned and expected.

Immediately, the club authorities swung into action to ensure the team could get on the next plane to Windhoek. And amazingly the team was booked on the next flight SW714 from Cape town to Windhoek at 1215hrs.

The team finally set foot on Namibia soil at 1540hrs at Hosea Kutako Airport, Windhoek.

We are here to play football and make sure we pick up a positive result away. We are focused and we will not let the hiccups encountered get us distracted.  We have our eyes set on the prize.
