Namibia national football team on Saturday won the 2015 regional Council of Southern Africa Football Associations (COSAFA) Cup for the first time in history.

The team, also known as The Brave Warriors, beat Mozambique 2-0 in the final match played in South Africa.

Sensational striker Deon Hotto scored both goals for Namibia to emerge among the top scorers of this year’s COSAFA tournament with four goals.

Brave Warrior’s head coach Ricardo Monnetti stood out throughout the tournament, winning many fans’ hearts with his optimism and charisma that gave the first ever COSAFA Cup title for his country.

Namibia’s victory in the regional football competition sounds alarm to Kenya’s Harambee Stars, as the two sides are in the same group for the 2016 African Cup of Nations qualifiers.

Namibia had earlier in the finals beaten Madagascar 3-2 while Mozambique eliminated Botswana 2-1 to qualify for the final.

Fourteen teams participated in this year’s COSAFA cup finals in South Africa.

Tanzania’s Taifa Stars and Black Stars of Ghana were the guest-teams.
