A goal by striker Brouwers Litombo shortly before halftime gave African Stars a 1-0 victory against Hotspurs on Thursday night. From a quick counterattack, Edison Muheau sent a long cross to the far post where an unmarked Litombo scrambled the ball into the net.
A big crowd of more than 2 000 people turned up to watch the match at the Khomasdal Stadium but there was not really much to write home about.
Midway through the first half Litombo came close when he beat Hotspurs keeper Tommy Shilumbu to the ball but his shot was cleared off the line by Tuhafeni Hamukwaya.
Namibia dropped one place down to 115th in the world on the latest FIFA rankings for November, which were issued on Wednesday.
Namibia did not play any international matches during November, with their last international being a 4-2 victory against Zimbabwe on October 11.
Namibia is ranked eighth in the SADC region and 33rd in Africa.
Angola, who are ranked 70th in the world and 16th in Africa, are the top-ranked nation in SADC, followed by Zambia, who are ranked 72nd in the world and 18th in Africa.
Civics staged a dramatic comeback to beat Ramblers 3-2 at the Khomasdal Stadium on Wednesday night. Civics took the lead towards the end of an uneventful first half when Victor Helu stabbed in a loose ball in the box after Ramblers keeper Lukas Hashiti fumbled the ball and Likius Hafeni failed to clear it.
But barely three minutes later Ramblers were back on level terms when their Nigerian striker Paul Dixon headed in a freekick by captain Mani Martin.
