The MTC Namibia Football Association (NFA) Cup Aweh final is slated for tomorrow at 16:00 in Swakopmund, with Civics geared to take on Mighty Gunners.

Make no mistake, these two clubs are ready to put everything on the line for an epic showdown. Civics reached the final after beating Blue Waters 5-4 on penalties in the semi-finals in Gobabis at Legare Stadium last weekend. The match was the first semi-final clash of the Cup, with the two teams going into extra time after a goalless 90 minutes. In extra time, Blue Waters scored first through Dawid Moses with about five minutes left in the second half of additional time. However, his celebration was short-lived with Civics’ Itamunua Keimuine scoring for his side two minutes later. The match went into a penalty shootout. Civics successfully converted all their five spot kicks while Blue Waters missed their final spot kick.

In the second match of that day, Mighty Gunners beat Young African (YA) 4-1 on penalties. African supporters came out in numbers to watch the highly entertaining clash. Gunners scored two goals in the first half through Olsen Ameb and Vernon Klazen. But African scored on goal in the second half through Tapiwa Musekiwa to give his side a fighting chance. They then equalised in the last minutes through Ngazikue Kandetu to force the match into extra time. The match then went down to a penalty shootout, with Gunners emerging victorious.

Blue Waters and YA will play for third and fourth positions, with the match slated for 12:00.

Gebhardt Hengari of Mighty Gunners said the Cup is theirs for the taking as they lost the 2017 NFA Cup to YA. After last Saturday’s final, he also stated that they will use the week to work on their mistakes.

Gunners and Civics will contest for N$500 000, while the losing finalist will walk away with N$250 000, and the third and fourth finishers will scoop N$150 000 and N$100 000 respectively.
