Head to Head


This is the first ever meeting between these sides.

Cameroon Form


Cameroon won their opening qualifier for the 2023 Africa Cup of Nations by winning 1-0 against Burundi.

The Indomitable Lions were eliminated at the Group Stage of the 2022 FIFA World Cup. They lost 1-0 to Switzerland before a 3-3 thriller versus Serbia. They beat Brazil 1-0 in their final match although their opponents had already qualified. 

Since then, a squad of domestically-based players has featured in the CHAN tournament. They beat Congo 1-0 before losing 1-0 to Niger.

Cameroon Squad & Team News


Coach Rigobert Song has made a number of changes to his squad from the World Cup. Chelsea development player Ben Elliott has earned a first callup. 

Goalkeeper Andre Onana has retired from international football. Forwards Georges-Kevin Nkoudou and Christian Bassogog are among those dropped.

Goalkeepers: Devis Epassy, Simon Omossola, Marcelin Mbahbi
Defenders: Collins Fai, Christopher Wooh, Tolo Nouhou, Darlin Yongwa, Malcom Bokele, Jean-Charles Castelletto, Flavien Enzo Boyomo, Nicolas Nkoulou

Forwards: Vincent Aboubakar, Eric-Maxime Choupo Moting, Bryan Mbeumo, Karl Toko Ekambi, Ignatius Ganago, Moumi Ngamaleu, Jerome Ngom Mbekeli

Namibia Form


Namibia lost three of their last four World Cup 2022 Qualifiers. They were beaten home and away by Senegal and 1-0 at home by Togo.

Their AFCON 2023 qualification group has just three teams. They began with a 1-1 home draw vs Burundi after conceding in the 88th minute.

They have since played in the COSAFA Cup in South Africa, beating Madagascar 2-0 and Mozambique 1-0. They lost 1-0 to Zambia in the final.

Namibia Squad & Team News


Brave Warriors’ coach Collin Benjamin has not made many surprise selections. The key man is Mamelodi Sundowns striker Peter Shalulile. 

Orlando Pirates winger Deon Hotto will be crucial. Wigan defender Ryan Nyambe will anchor the back four.
