The marathon Namibian leg of the Neymar Junior Five tournament concluded with the final match between Windhoek based Bethlehem team from Khomasdal and the Lions from Oshakati.
It was a tense final with the trip to Brazil on each player's mind and after a 0-0 draw the match was decided on a one on one golden goal in which Pieter Hailombe won the ball in his own half and going all the way to score the winning golden goal that send his team to the football crazy Brazil.
