Key points South Africa - Namibia
Namibia played its first international under the name South-West Africa on 16 May 1989 at home against neighboring Angola and lost 10. On 23 March 1990, only two days after gaining independence from South Africa, they hosted neighbour Zimbabwe and lost 51. On 7 June, they lost a home friendly 21 to Mauritius. Namibia's next contests were played in Lesotho, where they lost 20 to their hosts on 1 August 1992, but gained their first ever draw in a 22 tie against the same opposition the very next day. Namibia's first win came on 1 July 1994 in a 10 victory away over Botswana in a friendly. On 17 May 1998, Namibia played their first match outside of Africa and against non-African opposition, losing 21 in a friendly in France against Saudi Arabia.
Links, who looked transformed since leaving for Egyptian side Asyouty Sport last January, unleashed a powerful left-footed shot which narrowly missed the target with Mbaeva well-beaten.
Bafana did most of the attacking after the restart and they managed to extend their lead through their captain Siyanda Xulu, who had reacted quickly at the far-post following a good free-kick by Modiba.
