The Namibian senior national team are currently busy preparing for the upcoming 2018 African Nations Championships and 2019 Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON) qualifiers.

Ricardo Mannetti, the Namibia head coach, has been holding extensive training sessions for local based players as they prepare for the competitive games in Windhoek.

“We are getting to where we want to be in terms of the depth in the squad," Mannetti told New Era Namibia.

"But again, this can change depending on injuries, possible new arrivals from the Debmarine Namibia Cup and of course with the start of the Premier League later next month.

"We also have the foreign-based players to consider.”

Nicknamed the Brave Warriors, Namibia are also expected to participate in the 2017 COSAFA Cup finals which will be hosted by South Africa in June 2017.

The current 22-member squad in Namibia camp:

Lodyt Kazapua (A Stars), David Peterson (Tigers), Charles Uirab (O Pirates), Edward Maova (Civics), Romario Ndjavera, Ferdinand Karongee (Tigers), Tebs Lombard, Charles Hambira (T Magic), Larry Horaeb (BA), Riaan Hanamub (Orlando Pirates), Edmund Kambanda (Unam), Stigga Ketjijere, Katiti Hakuria (A Stars), Benyamin Nenkavu (Tigers), Oswaldo Xamseb (T Magic), Dynamo Fredericks (BA), Pandeni Kandjabanga (Golden Bigs), Itamunua Keimuine (T Magic), Mapenzi Muwanei (Tigers), Muna Katupose, Immanuel Heita (BA) and Sakaria Jonas (Tigers)
