The "Millfield Mine Explosion" recalls the feelings of Goodwin as a sixth-grader when an explosion killed miners. His other recollections include a tale from his first trip to see his great-grandmother when it took all day to drive forty miles. But perhaps most memorable is Goodwin's trip to Mallorca, Spain, to visit his daughter.

No customer reviews. A pair of 22 amateur footballers trotted onto the turf to compete against each other. The captains Hasso Ahrens Ramblers and young Albert Tjihero African Stars shook hands amidst loud applause from the thousands of fans that cramped into the tiny stadium.

At the gracious invitation of Gondwana, a total of 36 former footballers, trainers and officials who were part and parcel of the this historic occasion will get together for a reunion tonight. Both teams will turn up at almost full-strength and while some squad members have long taken a bow from the game of life, the surviving squad members will be travelling to Windhoek from all over the country, from as far as Tsumkwe, Otavi, Swakopmund, Keetmanshoop, Walvis Bay, Johannesburg and Cape Town to revive the good old memories.
The stars of yesteryear will clink glasses and reminisce about that crucial and historic match and even though the tie ended in a controversial 3-all stalemate, there were two indisputable winners - football and human relations, which ultimately led to reconciliation. However, that historic match was marred by some dubious refereeing decisions.
Now with a different mindset, more mature and much wiser, the said referee will also be in attendance at the reunion as Namibia celebrates 24 years of independence. Among those in attendance was the author and year-old sports enthusiast Manny Goldbeck, who walked the long way from his parents home to the stadium, since the football crazy larney youngster wanted to be part of this historic match very much against the wishes of his old man.
Today, Manny is the Managing Director of the Gondwana Collection and it was his idea to arrange a reunion of his former football idols - almost 40 years later, following the end of apartheid. With this reunion, we want to highlight that with the general elections approaching and also against the background of the controversy about the much trumpeted equestrian monument that we are still one nation.
Global United FC is a non-profit association of international football stars that support environmental awareness education, while spreading the core message of climate change throughout the world. Afterwards, a strong Old Boys invitational former local top footballers squad comes up against the star studded Global United FC, featuring former local and internationals such as Collin Benjamin, Olaf Marschall and former Ireland international Terry Phelan.
So far, close to people have confirmed their attendance. Football gurus Willem Hans and Hasso Ahrens will also be in action.inspirafenae2019.fenae.org.br/fojig-como-ligar.php
