WINDHOEK: Rundu-based Julinho Sporting Football Club (FC) Head Coach, Nelson Luis, highlighted the significance of hard work in order to win football matches against Debmarine Namibia Premiership opponents.
Luis who recently ended newly promoted fan favourite Eeshoke Chula Chula FC’s winning streak on Wednesday said his team works as a unit, has game plans, and is motivated to win.
“We are not in a bad position as it looks because we still have games in hand to play,” said Luis.
Julinho Sporting FC, or the ‘Rundu Lions,’ as they are affectionately known, have only lost two games this season and have four clean sheets out of six games played.
The team is high in spirits as they prepare to face third-placed African Stars FC in their round eight match, on Saturday at the Rundu Sport Stadium, Kavango-East region, at 16h00.
However, Julinho FC defensive midfielder and captain Xoagub Alfons will be unavailable for the weekend games due to a pre-season injury. Central midfielder Jessy Nanyemba will also miss the games due to injury.
Coach Luis added, “Supporters should expect a team that is ready to win and make them happy. Julinho FC strives to show the fans that they are valuable and that the team is worthy”.
He further thanked all the supporters for coming to support the team’s victory in their previous clash against Chula Chula and urged them to come again.
Julinho will take on a struggling Orlando Pirates FC at Rundu Sports Stadium on Sunday at 14h00 for their round nine fixture.
