The Red Devils of Congo will be hoping to return to winning ways following the 1-2 WC Qualifiers – Africa losing effort in their last game against Togo.
It’s not been often in recent times that Congo have managed to hold out for a full 90 minutes. In fact, Congo have seen their defence breached in 5 of their previous 6 games, letting in 8 goals on the way. Still, time will tell if that pattern will persist in this next game or not.
On the other side, following on from being defeated in their last game at the hands of Senegal in WC Qualifiers – Africa action, Namibia and their fans will hope to get a better result this time.
In their last half-dozen clashes, Namibia have bagged the sum of 7 goals. Namibia have also not failed to score on each one of those occasions. During that period, they’ve had 9 goals go into their own net.
