The Brave Warriors departure from Nigeria has been delayed due to the plane crash that happened in Lagos on Sunday morning.
The Brave Warriors lost 1-0 to Nigeria in Calabar on Sunday afternoon and were supposed to depart from Lagos on Monday morning for Accra, Ghana with Nigeria Airways, but that has now been delayed.
A passenger plane crashed into a densely populated part of Lagos, Nigeria's commercial hub, on Sunday, killing all 147 people on board, the airline said.
President Goodluck Jonathan declared three days of national mourning and ordered an investigation into the cause of the crash which jolted residents of Lagos' Agege suburb where most live in tin-roofed buildings along unpaved streets.
The McDonnell Douglas MD-83, operated by privately owned domestic carrier Dana Air, was coming into land on a flight from the capital Abuja when it hit a building, not far from Lagos' Murtala Muhammed Airport, at 2:44 p.m. (1344 GMT) and burst into flames, according to the airline.
The Namibian team will now depart for Accra at 17h00 on Monday but the delay will not affect the team's connection to Windhoek and they are expected to arrive at 05h00 on Tuesday morning.
The Warriors will fly with Air Namibia on Monday evening, departing Accra at 22h00 and will arrive at 05h00 at the Hosea Kutako International Airport the next morning.
The Namibia Football Association has assured the families, friends and the nations at large that all is well with the team and they will arrive in Windhoek as scheduled.
