Namibia have only been a member of FIFA since 1992, and they have struggled in FIFA World Cup™ qualifying since. However, they have improved and on the road to Brazil 2014 they played all comers tough in the group stage – even taking a point from Nigeria.
Namibia has long been a rich picking ground for South African clubs and it is not surprising that a number of current Brave Warriors players have graced the playing fields of the Premier League, amongst them goalkeeper Virgil Vries, Rudolph Bester and Henrico Botes.
2 – The number of goals scored by the Namibians in six Brazil 2014 qualifying matches. They only conceded four.
