The Brave Warriors departed for Germany on Monday without the injured pair of Manfred Starke and Henrico Botes.
According to the Brave Warriors Team Manager Cyril Tim Isaacs, midfielder Manfred Starke and striker Henrico Botes withdrew from the squad due to injuries.
“They are out injured, but Henrico will join the team for the Kenya match at home on June 9”, Isaacs says.
Namibia’s foreign-based players will join the team in Johannesburg on Monday before they continue their journey to Germany, but Jomo Cosmos player Lazarus Kaimbi is not eligible to play the 2014 FIFA World Cup qualifier match against Nigeria match due to suspension.
Kaimbi received two yellow cards against Djibouti in the preliminary round in both the home and away legs, but will be available for the Kenya match on 9 June in Windhoek.
Meanwhile, the Nigeria Football Federation confirmed that the encounter between Nigeria and Namibia will be played at the U. J Esseune Stadium in Calabar, Cross River State in the Southern part of Nigeria on 3 June. The NFF said the poor pitch at the National stadium in Abuja was reason for the change of venue. Namibia will host Nigeria for the return leg in June 2013.
The Brave Warriors squad will be in Germany for a training camp, and will connect to Abuja Nigeria on 31 May.
The Warriors are expected to play a number of friendly matches while in Germany including against Mozambique on 26 May, and other clubs in Germany.
After the 9 June match against Kenya at the Independence Stadium in Windhoek, the Brave Warriors will turn their attention to the crucial 2013 CAF AFCON qualifier match to be played in Windhoek on 16 June against Liberia. Liberia hold a slender advantage after winning the first leg encounter between the two teams 1-0 in Monrovia in February.
