Namibia will play neighbours South Africa in the last eight

Teenager Lazarus Kaimbi steered Namibia to a quarter-final of the Cosafa Senior Challenge after beating Malawi 1-0 on Thursday to snatch top place in Group B.

The Jomo Cosmos winger, who turns 20 next month, netted early in the second half in the group decider at the Lilian Ngoyi Stadium in Secunda.

The home side finished top of the Group B standings with seven points, one more than Malawi, who had only needed to draw to go through to the last eight.

The Brave Warriors will now meet neighbours South Africa in the quarter-final of the tournament.

Lesotho finished third in the group after beating the Comoros Islands 1-0 with a 74th minute goal from Moli Lesesa in Thursday's other match in Secunda.

It was the first win for Likuena while the Indian Ocean islanders departed the tournament with three successive defeats, but certainly did not disgrace themselves.

Namibia's progress completes the quarter-final line-up for the weekend.

They now meet a South Africa development team in Witbank on Saturday where three time champions Angola will also play against Madagascar in a double-header attraction.

On Sunday, Zambia take on Zimbabwe while Botswana play Mozambique, both in Secunda.

The annual southern African champioship is being hosted by South Arica's Mpumalanga province.
