THE Young Warriors will take on Tunisia in the U20 African Cup of Nations Tournament next after their one-all draw against the team of the Central African Republic on Monday evening.
The match on 18 February against Tunisia will be the Namibians’ second group match before they conclude their Group B campaign in the Afcon tournament against Burkina Faso on Sunday.
The team from the Central Africa Republic (CAR) is currently at the top of the Group B log. Namibia is lying second. Burkina Faso and Tunisia, who played to a goalless draw in their first match lie third and fourth.
At the end of the match against the CAR, Prince Tjiueza was selected as the man of the match for his fine performance.
The Namibian side dominated the match, especially during the first half when they scored their only goal.
The CAR drew even in the second half with a fine shot at goal from Flory Yangao that flew past the hands of goalkeeper Ngatangue Ruhaka into the back of the net.
Edmar Kamatuka could have scored toward the end of the match when he went one-on-one with the CAR’s goalkeeper. The shot was deflected and resulted in a corner kick from which the young Namibians could not capitalise.
