Three PSL players in Namibia squad



Namibia have named three Absa Premiership players in a full strength squad to take on Zambia in a friendly international just before the start of next month’s African Nations Cup finals.

But it is not yet clear whether Platinum Stars’ striker Henrico Botes, named the league’s best player for November and December, plus Ronald Ketjijere of Pretoria University or the Orlando Pirates reserve striker Rudolph Bester will be allowed to play in the game.

The match on January 15 falls outside of the Fifa calendar and the South African clubs, who will be busy with their mid-season preparations, are under no obligation to release the player.

Namibia coach Bernard Kaanjuka has named a total of 20 players for the warm-up international at the Mbombela Stadium.

It will be played exactly six days before Zambia begin the defence of their Nations Cup crown against Ethiopia at the same venue.

Namibia, who have recalled the Thailand based striker Tangeni Shipahu who was previously with AmaZulu, are potentially a lucky omen for Zambia.

They were the last opponent that Zambia played in Johannesburg in January before they headed off to the Nations Cup in Equatorial Guinea and Gabon, from which they emerged victorious.

Efraim Tjihonge of National First Division club Milano FC is also in the squad.
