South Africa vs Namibia (By: PlayMaker)
In the 2019 CAN Cup, South Africa and Namibia fell into the bracket too difficult with the presence of two bright candidates for the championship is Ivory Coast and Morocco. In fact, in the opening game of Group D, South Africa lost to Ivory Coast with a score of 0-1. Meanwhile, Namibia also lost to Morocco with the same score.
In this difficult group, South Africa and Namibia can only aim for third place and hope to continue as one of the best-performing third-place teams. Therefore, tonight's clash was treated as a final with both teams.
In terms of class, South Africa is more appreciated. They are ranked 72nd in the FIFA ranking, 39 more than Namibia. This is the 10th time South Africa has participated in the VCK CAN Cup. In the last 9 times, they had 1 championship and 1 time to the final. As for Namibia, this is the third time they have attended the CAN Cup. In the last two times (1998 and 2008), this team all stopped in the group stage.
The force that Namibia brings to the 2019 CAN Cup does not have many notable names. Most of them are currently playing in domestic tournaments. The most notable name is defender Ryan Nyambe who plays in England for Blackburn Rovers.
And for South Africa, despite falling into a financial crisis, they still have a lot of hope. Among them, there are some players playing in Europe such as midfielder Bongani Zungu (Amiens), Thulani Serero (Vitesse), Kamohelo Mokotjo (Brentford), striker Lebo Mothiba (Strasbourg) or Lars Veldwijk (Sparta Rotterdam). ) ...
Considering the performance, South Africa caused great disappointment when there were only 1 victory in the last 9 matches (winning 1, drawing 7, losing 1). However, on the trading floor, they are still highly appreciated by bookmakers. Against the opponent with the lowest rating in the table, South Africa has reason to believe in a good result. Otherwise, this team hardly hopes to overcome the 2019 CAN Cup group stage.
Both teams had only 5 shots on total in the 1st round and none of them is on target. However, their opponent are at very much higher class. Now they have reason to attack and score in this important game and I cannot see a low-scoring can happen here.
