The action continues in Group E of the Africa Cup of Nations when South Africa and Namibia meet at the Amadou Gon Coulibaly Stadium on Sunday.

Both sides come into the game after contrasting results on the opening day, with the Brave Warriors claiming a shock victory over group favorites Tunisia.

South Africa were denied a dream start to AFCON 2023 when they fell to a 2-0 defeat against Mali in Group E last Tuesday.

After a relatively uneventful first half, Hamari Traore and Lassine Sinayoko scored within six minutes to give the Eagles a comfortable victory.

South Africa are now under pressure to turn things around on Sunday as they look to avoid a first AFCON group stage exit since 2015.

Namibia caused one of the biggest upsets in the first round of the AFCON group stages with a 1-0 win over Tunisia last Tuesday.

Orlando Pirates man Deon Hotto grabbed the headlines when he scored the winner in the 88th minute to stun Carthage Eagles in Korhogo.

Namibia have now gone three consecutive matches without defeat in all competitions, recording one draw and two wins, including a 2-0 win over Sao Tome and Principe in a World Cup qualifier in November.

South Africa possible starting lineup:

Williams; Mobbie, Xulu, Mvala, Modiba; Mayambela, Sithole, Mokoena, Tau; Lepasa, Makgopa

Namibia possible starting lineup:

Kazapua; Nyambe, Amutenya, Haukongo, Hanuman; Petrus, Iimbondi, Shitembi, Tijueza, Hotto; Shalulile
