Namibia secured a second successive injury-time victory at the 2018 African Nations Championship to join Group B rivals Zambia in the quarterfinals.

The Brave Warriors defeated Uganda 1-0 at the Marrakech Stadium in Morocco on Thursday night, having overcome Ivory Coast in a similar fashion on Sunday.

The result means Zambia (who beat Ivory Coast earlier in the evening) and Namibia have joined Morocco and Sudan (both Group A) in the final eight of the continental competition, while the Cranes and Elephants have both been eliminated.

Group B takes center stage on Friday with Libya (who beat Equatorial Guinea in their first game) taking on Nigeria who are looking a first win. Rwanda face Equatorial Guinea in the other group game.
