Namibia will look to pick up a second win at the 2017 U-20 Cosafa Cup when they face Lesotho in a Group C clash on Sunday afternoon.

The match is scheduled for kick-off at 12h00 midday CAT at the Nkana Stadium.

The young Brave Warriors come into the match having beaten Angola 1-0 in their Group C opener on Friday: Enzo Mungendje’s early goal took them to victory and a place at the top of the standings.

Lesotho, meanwhile, are placed joint-second alongside Zimbabwe after the teams played out a goalless stalemate on Thursday.

The young Likuena will hope to get the better of Namibia and boost their hopes of qualifying for the last four - especially as only the group winner is guaranteed a place in the semifinals.

The other Group C match between Zimbabwe and Angola will be played later in the day at the same venue. Kick-off will be at 15h00 CAT.
