Namibia succumbed to a 1-0 defeat at home as they welcomed Guinea for their 2018 FIFA World Cup Qualifier on Thursday afternoon at Sam Nujoma National Stadium.
Although the hosts were eager to bag a win at home, their visitors netted early when Salzburg forward Naby Keita bagged their away goal 27 minutes into the contest.
Despite their strides to get an equaliser, the Brave Warriors couldn’t get something as both sides headed to the tunnel with their visitors leading.
Luis Fernandez’s Syli Nationale bounced back in the second stanza and although they failed to get their second goal, they were successful in protecting their lead.
However, in the 50th minute Bamba Fousseni was given an early shower after getting his second yellow card, leaving his teammates down to 10.
Following the result, Namibia will have to go to Guinea and give it their best hoping to overturn the result.
Their coach Ricardo Mannetti will have to ensure his forwards such as Petrus Shitembi and Benson Shilongo are clinical upfront.
On the other hand, the hosts will target another win and ensure they’re through to the group stages of the qualifiers en route to Russia.
The clash will staged at Stade Mohamed V in Casablanca on Sunday night.
