Deon Hotto Set to Represent Namibia at AFCON 2023; Orlando Pirates May Have Multiple Players at the Tournament

Orlando Pirates’ versatile player, Deon Hotto, is set to represent Namibia at the upcoming Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON).

Namibia secured their spot in the tournament without playing a match, thanks to Tuesday’s result between Cameroon and Burundi in the final Group C encounter.

Cameroon emerged victorious with a 3-0 win, securing their place in the finals.

Qualification through Hard Work

Namibia’s qualification, albeit without kicking a ball in this instance, reflects the hard work put in by the team during the qualification process.

Their dedication and efforts paid off, earning them a place in next year’s AFCON finals.

Hotto’s Role in the National Team

Deon Hotto is a crucial member of the Namibia national team, boasting 66 caps and providing invaluable experience.

His presence on the field will undoubtedly be vital for the team’s performance in the tournament.

Prospects for Orlando Pirates Players

Orlando Pirates could potentially have more than one player representing their respective nations at the AFCON in Cote d’Ivoire in January 2024.

Richard Ofori, another Orlando Pirates player, may also make the journey to AFCON following Ghana’s qualification last week.

Ofori was part of the Black Stars squad in their final group match.

South African-born Players in the Mix

Additionally, several South African-born players who currently play for Orlando Pirates may secure spots in Hugo Broos’ final squad to represent Bafana Bafana at the AFCON finals.


This news highlights the international reach and prominence of Orlando Pirates as a football club.

Deon Hotto and potentially Richard Ofori’s participation in AFCON 2024 not only reflects their individual talent but also the contribution of the club to international football.

It’s an exciting prospect for fans of both Orlando Pirates and African football in general, as they look forward to seeing their favorite players shine on the continental stage.
