Shepolopolo seek to advance to the second round of the 2016 African Women Championship qualifiers as they face Namibia away in the return leg of the first round on Friday.

The Brave Gladiators host the Zambia Women National Team in a 17h00 kick off match at Sam Nujoma Stadium in Katutura, Windhoek.

Zambia have a 3-1 advantage from the first leg match played on March 6 in Lusaka.

“Yes we have a three one goal advantage but we shall not sit and wait for them to come,” Zambia coach Albert Kachinga said.

“The best way to defend is to attack, but we shall do this with a lot of caution because we know that Namibia will come at us from the first whistle,” he added.

The team left for Namibia on Wednesday.

The overall winners between Zambia and Namibia will face Zimbabwe or Tanzania in the next round of the qualifying campaign for the tournament to be hosted by Cameroon.

Shepolopolo are seeking only their second appearance at the African Women Championship.
