Brave Gladiators to face Angola – Coleman jets in for friendlies
NFA- Brave Gladiators coach Robert Nauseb has included Spain-based Zenatha Coleman in his final 23 players to face Angola in two international friendlies on Wednesday and Saturday.

“It was not an easy decision to make come up with the final squad. All the players gave their all and the commitment was encouraging but in the end we can only do with 23. We have options and that is good going forward,” said Nauseb.
