 The girls are lacking match fitness – Isaacs

The Namibian senior women's national football side is missing out on a chance to progress to the next round of qualifiers for the 2020 Tokyo Olympic Games, after losing to neighbouring Botswana on aggregate on Tuesday night at the Sam Nujoma stadium in Windhoek.
Botswana already had the upper hand after recording a one nil victory in the first leg played in Gaborone.
With that in mind, the return leg was a do or die for the Brave Gladiators who wasted no time from the onset as they opened the scoring 5 minutes into the game, through Lovisa Mulunga.
The visiting side, however, also had plans, as they responded with a goal six minutes later, after Namibia failed to clear their defense line.
The host team put more pressure on the opponents, which resulted in them getting this free kick.
As expected, Zenatha Coleman stepped up and scored a beauty from a free kick. The first half ended with Namibia leading by two goals to one.
Four minutes from the change-over, Namibia had another chance, but Iina Katuta's effort was denied by Maitumelo Bosija of Botswana.
Shortly after that save, the Brave Gladiators' defense was bridged once more, as Nondi Mahlasela recorded her brace, making it 2-2.
2-all it all ended, which resulted in Botswana going through on aggregate by three goals to two.
Botswana will now have to play another qualifier against South Africa.
Namibia's Coach Brian Isaacs cited lack of match fitness to his side's loss.
