Mares' attacker, Nondi Mahlasela's brace was enough to help the women's senior team advance to the second round of the 2020 Olympic Games. The team played to a 2-2 draw with Namibia in the second leg of the first round of the qualifiers at the Sam Nujoma Stadium on Tuesday evening as they advanced on a 3-2 aggregate score.

The local girls beat their opponents by a solitary goal with a brave performance in the first leg played on Friday evening at the National Stadium. 

Last evening, the Brave Gladiators' coach, Brian Isaacs made three changes to the team that faced the Mares four days earlier, with the most notable being veteran goalkeeper, Lydia Eixas replacing 20-year-old Melissa Matheus. The locals remained unchanged, as head coach, Gaolethoo Nkutlwisang returned to the technical bench.
