Namibia advance to FIFA World Cup Group stage

A goal in each half led the Brave Warriors to a 2-0 win over Eritrea on Tuesday night at a packed Sam Nujoma Stadium where a 4-1 aggregate saw the senior national team advance into the group stages of the 2022 FIFA World Cup Qualifiers. Returning to the team after missing the first leg away in Asmara, Absalom Iimbondi started and scored on 24 minutes at the near post to break down the stubborn Eritrean defense. Captain Peter Shalulile and Benson Shilongo had chances in the first half against Eritrea who held their own very well in the first stanza. Eritrea also had their chances with their captain Henock coming close with a free-kick before halftime.
