Meet the Wonderkids, Cosafa U/17 champs

Namibia’s U/17 football team recently made history when they clinched the 2016 edition of the coveted COSAFA U-17 Championships held in Mauritius. With the team’s victory making coach Timo Tjongarero only the second Namibian gaffer to have won a Cosafa trophy – the first being Brave Warriors mentor Ricardo Mannetti who won the Cosafa Cup senior challenge last year, the boys from the land of the brave also rewrote the history books by becoming the country’s first U/17 side to win the trophy. Namibia beat South Africa 3-1 on penalties to be crowned champions.
