Namibia crashed out of the TOTAL African Nations Championship (CHAN) when they Saturday lost 1-0 to Tanzania.
Farid Mussa scored the all important goal in the second half that gave the Taifa Stars the first victory in the Total Chan 2020.
And as a result, both Zambia and Guinea maintained their places at the top of the group with four points apiece while Tanzania keep alive their hopes of advancing with three points in third place.
Namibia have no points after two matches and have thus been eliminated from the competition because they cannot finish at least second the group even if they win their final match.
For the first time in a CAF senior Men’s competition, the game that took place in Limbe was handled by only female officials.
The female refereeing trio of referee Lidya Tafesse (Ethiopia) and assistant referees Bernadettar Asimenye Kwimbira (Malawi) and Mimisen Agatha Iyorhe (Nigeria) was in charge of the match.
Namibia will play Zambia in their final group game at the Limbe Stadium on Wednesday while Guinea travel to the Stade de la Réunification in Douala to face Tanzania in the matches that will be played simultaneously.
