The first leg was played in Windhoek on 10 August, which Stars won 3-2. The second leg is in Uganda and the normalisation committee, on behalf of the Namibia Football Association (NFA), encouraged the ambitious club to represent the country well.
“African Stars' commitment to taking Namibian football to Africa is commendable and we can only wish them well and support them, where possible, to ensure that they do all Namibians proud.
“They remain our only hope in continental competitions of late, and we are indeed proud of their enthusiasm.
“Competing in Africa demands a lot from a club, and for Stars to have taken on that responsibility, they should be applauded. We urge all football-loving people in Namibia to set aside their club differences and support Stars in this important fixture, as they are flying the flag of this country high,” said the Fifa normalisation committee vice-chairperson Franco Cosmos. Stars are hoping to finish the job at the KCCA Startimes Stadium in Lugogo. The match kicks off at 16:00.
The 18-man Stars squad is as follows: Ratanda Mbazuvara, Mbemutjiua Mata, Dennis Tjetjinda, Tjiuana Tja Tjatindi, Ivan Kamberipa, Pat-Nevin Uanivi, Edmund Kambanda, Obrey Amseb, Youssouf Ibrahim, Ronald Ketjijere, Marcel Papama, Alfeus Handura, Gustav Isaak, Treasure Kauapirura, Gabriel Kapopo, Chrispen Mbewe, Deon Tjizumaue and Kaejarukapo Katjimune.
