Namibia draw 1-1 in Gambia

AmaZulu midfielder Petrus Shitembi struck in the 64th minute to give the visitors the lead, but Gambia hit back via Demba Savage in the 78th minute.

The Brave Warriors had to endure six minutes of time added on before their point was sealed – a creditable result considering South Africa could only draw 0-0 at home to Gambia in a Nations Cup qualifier in June.
