The Simbas head coach Jerome Paarwater has named his finest squad for the match bringing back Simon Muniafu, who missed last weekend’s 100-10 win over Tunisia after sustaining a knock in the team’s Gold Cup opener against Uganda three weeks ago.

Paarwater has quickly shifted focus to the Senegal match forgetting their great win against Tunisia and the West Africans fall to Namibia.

“Our focus is now on Senegal; they will come with a big fight and it will be a tough game. We just need to focus on it,” he said.

The 28-year old will be assisted by the Namibian duo of Oscar Lambert and Nicardo Pienaar with Zambian Joseph Ingwe serving as the Citing Commissioner.

Starting lineup: 15.Tony Onyango, 14. Darwin Mukidza, 13. David Ambunya, 12. Leo Seje, 11. Jacob Ojee, 10. Isaac Adimo, 9. Samson Onsomu, 1. Moses Amusala, 2. Peter Karia, 3. Dennis Karani, 4. Wilson Kopondo (captain), 5. Simon Muniafu, 6. Eric Kereh, 7. Davis Chenge, 8. Joshua Chisanga.
