Chens-sur-Leman is in France :)
Just for 300 meters, but it's France. See https://www.google.it/maps/place/HRRC+H ... 4d6.251482

It's also 300 meters from the Geneva Lake

Neptune wrote:Year in year out, Namibia always ensure that their toughest opponents always play in Windhoek. In a nutshell, they always ensure that they are hosting Zimbabwe and Kenya. The last time the Welschwistas were in Nairobi was in 2006. Surely, when will this nonsense end? We have always talked about it, but our cries fall on deaf ears. In all sports competitions, for fairness to be achieved, Home and Away fixtures are put, so that each team gets a chance to visit the other. In Africa's case, Namibia only travel to the weakest opponents in the Gold Cup.

But Namibia are away to Zimbabwe this year. And from 2011-2014, the matches were staged at one central venue, so there were no home and away games. In 2007 and 2009, they didn't even play Kenya or Zimbabwe.

In fact, since the beginning of the Africa Cup in 2000, Namibia has played both Zimbabwe and Kenya at home only 4 times in 17 editions (2004, 2015, 2016 and 2017).

You might think it's always because it happened 3 times in a row, but it only happened once before 2015...

Looks like a long spell on the sidelines for Namibia and Harlequins back row Renaldo Bothma. Ouch.
