Civics and Brave Warriors defender Amos Shiyuka bid farewell to the game at a glittering gala dinner at the Windhoek Country Club on Friday, June 29.
Leading sport and soccer officials like Minister of Sport John Mutorwa and members of the South African Legends team, including former stars like Doc Khumalo, Phil Masinga and Tebogo Moloi attended the dinner which also served as a fundraiser for various Namibian charities.
Oliver and Wilko Risser have taken Namibian soccer by storm over the past month.
Although both brothers started their careers with Ramblers, they have been playing in Germany for the past few years and were not too well known in Namibian football circles.
Namibiaâ??s chances of qualifying for the 2008 Africa Cup of Nations in Ghana are slim, after they only picked up four from a possible six points at home to Libya and the DR Congo last month.
On June 2 Namibia beat Libya 1-0 and a fortnight later they drew 1-all against the DRC. They should have won the last match after wasting numerous chances, and in stead of leading the log they now find themselves second last in Group 10.
