“I'm here because I love you. I had a management board meeting, but I postponed it because my sons have an important job ahead.
“But I'm not the only one, the whole nation loves you. Those that will not be travelling with the team will be watching you on their television sets, so don't think that you will be alone,” he told the players at the NFA Technical Centre yesterday.
The minister went on to encourage sponsors to support local athletes in the country.
Warrior's gaffer Ricardo Mannetti said they started preparations last week, before the Zambia team, who are they are keeping taps on them.
“We are keeping an eye on them as this is the biggest match in the last 10 years. We are going to war and have to make a success of this.
“We started with fitness training and I'm happy thus far with the response from the players.”
He assured the football-loving nation of Namibia that the players will not disappoint next weekend.
In the build-up to the match, the ministry of sport, in collaboration with the Namibia Sports Commission (NSC), the Namibia Football Association (NFA) and the Warriors Supporters Club, have agreed to make three buses available to transport supporters to and from Zambia for the clash.
The buses will be stationed in Windhoek, Oshakati and Rundu. People travelling from Windhoek are expected to contribute a fee of N$700 and those travelling from Oshakati will contribute N$500, while people from Rundu will each give N$400, and supporters from Katima Mulilo will have to contribute a minimum of N$350.
The funds will be used for fuel and for paying the drivers. The government can only cater for fuel within Namibia's borders.
The contributions in Windhoek must paid at the NSC and NFA offices. A Namibian passport and certified copy of your ID must accompany your contribution fee. Passports will be returned upon completion of all the relevant documents.
Seats cannot be booked in advance or kept. It's strictly first come, first served.
