Sevilla star Coleman’s brace inspires Namibia to victory over Angola

The forward inspired the Brave Gladiators to claim a clinical friendly victory in Windhoek on Wednesday

Zenatha Coleman scored twice for Namibia as they defeated Angola 4-0 in an international friendly at the Sam Nujoma Stadium on Wednesday.

The Brave Gladiators were regrouping for the first time since the Caf Olympic qualifiers elimination by Botswana in April 2019. They failed to appear at the 2020 Cosafa Women’s Cup.

In a buildup to the 2022 Africa Women’s Cup of Nations qualifier, the Namibia Football Association started preparations, arranging this month’s double-header friendly against Angola in Windhoek.

Thomalina Adams converted from the spot in the 11th minute to get the hosts off to a flying start against the Central Africans.

The visitors held on to their nerves until the Sevilla striker found a breakthrough on a one-on-one to double the Gladiators’ lead eight minutes from the half-time break.

After the restart, the captain continued where she left off as she grabbed her brace and the hosts third off a cross from the right, into the area seven minutes into the second half.  

Eight minutes later, Millicent Hikuam netted a fourth of the encounter to wrap up the massive win for the hosts over the visitors.

Following her contributions, Coleman was named the Women’s Player of the Match, having netted in either half of the match.
