Prince Tjiueza the early star of COSAFA U-17 Cup

Namibian fans may find it hard to keep their feet on the ground after they began their COSAFA U-17 Cup campaign with an emphatic 8-3 victory over Seychelles on Thursday.

However, in Prince Tjiueza, the Baby Warriors boast the outstanding individual of the competition so far, and a player who has the quality to fire the Namibians to the title.

Regardless of the young forward's class in his four-goal display in the evisceration of the Seychelles, this bout was a long time coming for a Namibia side...
