– Both teams have made changes to starting line ups. Mauritius have dropped four players from the squad that lost 2-0 to Zimbabwe in Group A opener. Goalkeeper Kelvin Jean-Louis is out with James Caserne steps in between sticks.
– Namibia also have brought in the starting line up Hoaseb, Keimuine, Shalulile, Shilongo for dropped Shithembi, Dotto, Musambani and Somaeb
29′ – Mauritius coach Didier Six has been standing on the technical area and he seems unhappy with officials. He has since sent Mauritius substitute players to warm up on the southern side. Too many stops and starts in the game due to fouls from either side.
38′ – Shitembi should have done better when meeting a ball from the left, but his first touch was too heavy and he lost the ball which rolled out. Namibia wastes another open chance as Keimuine’s attempt gets blocked by on rushing Mauritius keeper Caserne.
58′ – Namibia corner again. This time from left after Mauritius defence blocks a goal-bound shot from Keimuine. A long one is taken and flies wide. For how long will Namibia keep fluffing such scoring openings?
