AFCON 2019: South Africa beat Namibia 1-0 to keep Round of 16 hopes alive

South Africa kept alive their hopes of qualifying for the Round of 16 after beating Namibia 1-0 in the Africa Cup of Nations Group D game on Friday night.

Bongani Zungu broke the deadlock with a header in the 68th minute to score his country’s first goal of the tournament.

South Africa now have three points from two games, the same point with Ivory Coast who lost 1-0 to Morocco earlier today in Group D.

To qualify, Bafana Bafana need a better result against group leaders Morocco than Ivory Coast get against Namibia.

Namibia also have a slim chance of qualification, but they will need to score their first tournament goal since 2008 to beat Ivory Coast, and hope Morocco beat South Africa by more than one goal.
