Namibia was drawn in Pool G at the World Men’s Teams Squash Championships in Germany with Scotland, Mexico and 7th seeded Canada. Their first two matches did not bear much fruit, except gaining the experience and the feel of what it takes to play against regularly PSA campaigners.
Day 1: Namibia played Mexico and Norbet Carl Doregoh realised that it is all in the intensity, speed and in the anticipation of the opponent’s movement that can be the difference between wining and losing. Norbet went down 3 – 0 to Eric Salazor. Marco Becker who plays his squash in South Africa could do very little to prevent Mexico from clinching victory of the fixture.
Day 2 unseeded Scotland played Namibia and the team looked more comfortable on court. The game was played in great spirit, hard and leaving nothing to chance. Scotland beat Namibia 3 – 0 ending Namibia’s quest to reach the last 16.
Today Namibia played the mighty Canadians who are known for their power play and aggression. It will be interesting to see how Namibia approaches the match.
