Namibia have named 14 foreign players and promoted three starlets from their under-20 side in an expansive 36-man squad named by coach Bobby Samaria for their final two Africa Cup of Nations qualifiers later this month.
Steven Damaseb, Amazing Kandjii and Prins Tjiueza were all promoted up after staring for Namibia in their maiden appearance at the U-20 Africa Cup of Nations in Mauritania.
The team will be captained by in-form striker Peter Shalulile of South African champions Mamelodi Sundowns.
Namibia only have an outside chance of qualifying from Group A after losing three of their previous four qualifiers but play Chad in Ndjamena on Wednesday, March 24 and conclude their campaign at home to Guinea on Saturday, March 28.
