Match Preview

The most recent time the two teams met was on March 5, 2014, in an international friendly that ended 1-1.

This is the second appearance the East African nation is making in the competition. In 2009, they were eliminated in the group stage after a win, draw, and a loss.

For Namibia, their last appearance in Chan was in 2018 where they surprised many by reaching the quarter-finals. They are still hoping of performing well in this edition.
