Namibia qualified for the Africa Cup of Nations last 16 for the first time yesterday after a nil-nil draw against Group E winners Mali in San Pedro.
The Brave Warriors will advance as one of the four best third-placed teams and meet Angola on Saturday for a place in the quarter-finals.
Mali secured top spot in the group with five points, one ahead of South Africa and Namibia, with Tunisia eliminated following another goalless stalemate in the group’s other game in Korhogo.
A last-16 tie with Burkina Faso awaits Mali on January 30.
Namibia stunned Tunisia 1-0 in their opening game for the country’s first ever AFCON win, but a 4-0 thrashing by neighbours South Africa left them needing a point from their final group match to be sure of a place in the knockout phase.
