Analysis & Prediction: Namibia vs Mali 01/24/24

Game Preview


On January 24, Namibia and Mali will square off at the Laurent Pokou venue, for a Group E game of the Africa Cup of Nations.


When everything is said and done, Namibia will have fond recollections of this tournament because it has been historic for them, regardless of the result of this match. On matchday 1, Namibia, captained by Collin Benjamin, produced one of the greatest shocks of the campaign when they defeated the highly anticipated Tunisians in a historic first-ever victory. They were unable to build on that effort, though, as they lost 4-0 against their neighbors, South Africa, on Sunday night after falling behind a Percy Tau penalty in the 1st half. Nevertheless, they won their 1st game in the Africa Cup of Nations, their first versus Tunisia as well. They will now try to accomplish a second first by advancing to the knockout stage. Namibia will be depending on Peter Shalulile, who has scored 4 goals in 6 Africa Cup of Nations games.



The AFCON matchup between Mali and Tunisia, who had been predicted to be the top sides in Group E, was eagerly anticipated. In their last game, the teams battled it out in a close 1-1 tie. Mali took the lead in the tenth minute through a spectacular left-footed goal by Lassine Sinayoko, assisted by Kamory Doumbia. However, the lead was short lived as Tunisia tied the score after ten minutes. That came after a great opening match of the tournament against South Africa, when they were fortunate to win 2-0 despite Tau missing a penalty kick with the score tied at zero. Mali have been eliminated in the Round of 16 in the last 2 competitions, and they have been ousted from group stages four times in the past 8 AFCON competitions. With 3 goals during the Africa Cup of Nations, Kamory Doumbia is the man the visitors are hoping to see.
