Zambia and Namibia will battle for top place in Group B this Sunday after both sides qualified to the 2018 CHAN quarterfinals with a match in hand.
Namibia joined Zambia in the last eight after beating Uganda 1-0 in Thursday’s second Group B game in Marrakech.
Just like they did against Cote d’Ivoire last Sunday, Namibia won via a customary stoppage time goal in the 90th minute to beat Uganda 1-0 and eliminate The Cranes from the Morocco tournament with a game to spare.
Halleluya Nekundi fired in a superb left-footed strike to propel the CHAN debutants to the quarterfinals on January 27.
Namibia has 6 points just like leaders Zambia but have an inferior goal difference.
A draw or win for Zambia on January 22 in Casablanca will see Chipolopolo win Group B and return to Marrakech where they will face the runners-up from Group A.
Group A leaders and hosts Morocco face 2nd placed Sudan on Saturday to decide the final top two status there.
Morocco and Sudan are both on 6 points.
