Namibia’s interim coach Bobby Samaria on Wednesday announced a forty-man squad ahead of the first leg of the 2021 AFCON qualifiers against Mali scheduled for Nov.13. Namibia is in Group A together with Guinea, Mali and Chad.
“We are a point behind Guinea and Mali who both stand on 4 points. It is important for us to go there not just to participate, but to make sure the return leg on Nov. 17 is relevant. We need points and that’s what we go for,” he said at a media briefing in Windhoek.
According to Samaria, players will report for a bio-bubble camp between Nov. 2-10, before the travelling squad to Bamako, Mali is announced.
The return leg is set for Nov.17 at the Sam Nujoma Stadium in Windhoek.
