Thapelo Morena of South Africa played in the TotalEnergies CAF Africa Cup of Nations match against Namibia on January 21, 2024, in Korhogo, Ivory Coast. South Africa had a disappointing start to the tournament with a 2-0 loss to Mali in their Group E opener. However, they impressed with a 4-0 victory over Namibia, which allowed them to move up from bottom place to second in the group.
In order to advance to the knockout stage, South Africa will need to keep an eye on the results of Group F. Morocco is expected to top the group, but both DR Congo and Zambia have a chance to overtake them in their respective last fixture. If South Africa finishes second in Group E, their possible opponent in the Round of 16 would be Morocco.
It is important for South Africa to secure a good result in their final group stage match against Tunisia. However, if Namibia manages to draw against Mali and South Africa loses to Tunisia by any score, South Africa would drop to fourth place in the group and be eliminated from the tournament.
