Shalulile’s brace gives Namibia win over Guinea


Mamelodi Sundowns striker Peter Shalulile scored a brace to ensure that the Brave Warriors of Namibia finished their 2021 Africa Cup of Nations (Afcon) qualifiers on a high with a 2-1 win over Guinea on Sunday afternoon

In the heat of the Sam Nujoma Stadium, Guinea took the lead against the run of play on 17 minutes through Mamadou Kane’s boot after some enterprising play down the right for the visitors.

In added time of the first half, Orlando Pirates star Deon Hotto raced down the left-wing and sent in a cross that Shalulile headed home from 17 metres out to draw Namibia level on the stroke of half time.

Shalulile, the Warriors captain, got his second goal of the match on 77 minutes as he poked home a loose ball from inside a crowded box.

It was then a special moment for Young Warriors star Prince Tjiueza who came on for Stephanus to make his debut for the senior side.

The score was not enough to take Namibia to consecutive Afcon finals but surely restored pride for the Brave Warriors.
