Namibia shocked Tunisia with an 88th-minute header from Deon Hotto to win their 2023 Africa Cup of Nations opener.

The Brave Warriors, rated 115th in the world and without a win in either of their previous nine Afcon matches, were deserving winners in Korhogo.

Striker Peter Shalulile had an early effort saved off the line, but Hotto capitalised on Bethuel Muzeu’s cross.

Tunisia leads Namibia by 87 places in the FIFA rankings.
