13 November 2019

Rovers defender Ryan Nyambe is set to feature for Namibia in a home encounter against Chad later on today.

The versatile defender, who can play at both right back and centre back, is likely to line-up in a back three system for his country, as he did in the African Cup of Nations in the summer.

Nyambe played in all three group games in that tournament, representing the Brave Warriors against Morocco, South Africa and Ivory Coast in the group stages of the competition before bowing out.

Qualifying for the next AFCON begins today for the 21-year-old, with Namibia joined in Group A by Mali, Guinea and Chad.

Ryan will hope to keep his place in the team for the away game against Guinea on Tuesday.

The groups can be seen below:

A: Mali, Guinea, Namibia, Chad
B: Burkina Faso, Uganda, Malawi, South Sudan
C: Ghana, South Africa, Sudan, Sao Tome
D: Democratic Republic of Congo, Gabon, Angola, Gambia
E: Morocco, Mauritania, Central African Republic, Burundi
F: Cameroon, Cape Verde, Mozambique, Rwanda
G: Egypt, Kenya, Togo, Comoros
H: Algeria, Zambia, Zimbabwe, Botswana
I: Senegal, Congo Brazzaville, Guinea-Bissau, eSwatini (formerly Swaziland)
J: Tunisia, Libya, Tanzania, Equatorial Guinea
K: Ivory Coast, Niger, Madagascar, Ethiopia
L: Nigeria, Benin, Sierra Leone, Lesotho

Kick-off is at 3pm today, with the encounter taking place at the Sam Nujoma Stadium in Windhoek.

Good luck, Ryan!
