Namibia's Komesho FC take the Metropolitan Cup

Posted: 25 April 2011 Time: 17:52

Komesho FC of Namibia beat African Soccer Developments (ASD) Cape Town 3-2 in the Final of the 2011 Metropolitan Under-19 Premier Cup, becoming the first foreign team ever to take the trophy.

It was a thriller of a Final, and although Komesho led 2-0 at half-time, they were lucky to take the game as ASD got two goals back in the second half.

Komesho have been impressive throughout the tournament, finishing undefeated and taking home a cool R30 000. ASD took home R15 000 as runners up.

In the group stages, Komesho overcame City Lovers 2-1, Ajax Cape Town 2-0 and Milano United 2-1, before overpowering Baltic Rangers -- who had earlier beaten Kaizer Chiefs -- with Neville Tjiueza, Petros Shitembi and Eslin Kamuhanga finding the back of the net.

Komesho also knocked Stars of Africa Academy off their pedestal, and in the exciting final pipped ASD, whose scholars like Ayanda Patosi, Devon Saal and Ebrahim Seedat have the advantage of individual coaching by ex-England and Arsenal striker Ian Wright.

The Namibian team was just full of age cheats, it is ridiculous. It is an open secret here in windhoek how old this Eslin Kamuhanga is. 24, was playing for the senior team since about three years ago and i know that the NFA helps these boys get new documents to change their age. This is embarasing for us namibians and must stop!

Komesho won because they were playing against kids. This Kamuhanga guy could not represent Khomas region et the Namibian newspaper cup held over the easter weekend because of his age, with the age limit being 20 and he went on to play with the under 19s. Strip these these off the title and don't invite them next time or scrutise them before the tournament.
