International Rugby: Ivory Coast in With a Chance

Ivory Coast v Namibia in Windhoek (WCQ Africa R2, SF; Africa Cup SF)

Venue: Hage Geingob Stadium

These two teams drew 13-13 just a few weeks ago in the first leg in Abidjan. The task for Ivory Coast will be difficult after a journey to Namibia. The home side will be out to win a secure a final spot, probably against Tunisia. The finals winner will head directly to New Zealand in 2011.
