Either way, Comoros or Namibia will make 2018 African Nations Championship (CHAN) history with the winner over two legs to seal their place at a first ever showpiece.

The first-leg clash will take place at the Stade de Moroni on Sunday afternoon, kick-off is at 14h00 CAT.

Neither Les Coelecantes nor the The Brave Warriors have ever qualified for the continental competition, with the CHAN tournament heading for its fifth destination - Kenya - next year.

The two nations booked their place in the Third Round, Southern Zone qualifiers following wins over Lesotho and Zimbabwe respectively.

The Island nation have been on the rise in recent years, but will be underdogs over two legs against the former COSAFA Cup holders. Comoros sit in 143rd spot in the latest FIFA world rankings while Namibia are in 136th.

Namibia will host their opponents in Windhoek for the reverse fixture next week.
