South Africa vs Namibia: Match Preview and Prediction
On the first day of the group stage, Namibia unexpectedly upset Tunisia 1-0 thanks to a late goal from Deon Hotto. With a win over the side currently occupying the bottom spot in the group, Collin Benjamin’s squad will now have an opportunity to guarantee their spot in the knockout stages.
Despite meeting tough opponents like Ghana and Tunisia along the way, the courageous warriors have gone three games without losing, which speaks something about their condition. In contrast, South Africa’s opponents lost 2-0 to Mali in their initial encounter due to their subpar performance.
Given that they have only won one of their last six games, South Africa’s performances up until this point have not been all that spectacular. In addition to suffering two losses in their previous three games, Hugo Broos’ team would have gone winless in their most recent encounter.
