The home-based Brave Warriors should assemble for a training camp at the NFA Technical Centre on Thursday, says head coach Collin Benjamin.
Benjamin is eager to get to work with his charges following the conclusion of the Debmarine Namibia Premiership on Saturday.
The camp will prepare for Namibia’s final 2023 Africa Cup Nations qualifier away to Burundi on 12 June and the Cosafa Senior Challenge slated for Durban, South Africa, in July.
Namibia need only to avoid defeat to secure their continental showpiece spot in Ivory Coast early next year.
Benjamin appealed to the called up players to continue working hard to maintain fitness.
“We should not lose the impetus and momentum achieved during the premiership; hence, a mandatory fitness test will be conducted on 2 June to ascertain fitness levels,” Benjamin said in a statement yesterday.

Goalkeepers: Ndisiro Kamaijanda (African Stars); Jonas Mateus (Orlando Pirates); Nelly Rooi (Tigers).
