OYDC men batter Shepolopolo


NATIONAL women’s team preparations for next month’s African Women Championship on Wednesday suffered a setback when they lost 7-3 to the Olympic Youth Development Centre (OYDC) men’s team in a practice match.
And Namibia women national team coach Jacqueline Shipanga expects the Shepolopolo to play an attacking when the sides meet in Lusaka.
The Albert Kachinga drilled side is in camp at OYDC to prepare for the first round first leg on March 6.
Meanwhile, Shipanga told that the technical bench is cautious that Zambia may pose a great attacking threat and try to take advantage of their home ground support.
“Zambia is one of the most experienced teams and we want to contain ourselves by being positive, since they have home advantage and they will attack [but] we want to go out and beat them,” Shipanga said.
The Gladiators go into the match as favourites having beaten Zambia 2-0 during group stages of the 2014 Africa Women Championship in Windhoek.
