'There’s always something in the air when it’s Namibia versus South Africa,' said the Namibia head coach.

“We want to upset the big brother. We’re delighted that we’re going to have a game of this magnitude, with South Africa bringing their strongest possible squad.”

Orlando Pirates’ Deon Hotto will be Namibia’s star man in attack, in the absence of Shalulile. He comes into the game fresh off the back of his first goal of the season for the Buccaneers, the winner in Sunday’s 2-1 MTN8 semifinal, first leg triumph at Stellenbosch FC. Playing on his home ground, and almost certainly against some of his Buccaneers teammates, should give extra motivation for Hotto to perform well against Bafana.Still, Bafana, as Benjamin mentioned, have a good squad of players, with their attack looking especially dangerous. Lyle Foster is in excellent form for Burnley, Lebo Mothiba has had a fine start to the season at Strasbourg and Mihlali Mayambela has helped Aris Limmasol qualify for the group stages of the Uefa Europa League.

Bafana have won five and drawn two of their matches since September 2022, discounting the Cosafa Cup, and including impressive Afcon qualifying wins in Liberia and at home to Morocco. They will not want that run to end against Namibia, however much more important other games are down the line.
