Costa, Pritchard, Nyoni win in Europe

[Posted 09 Mar 2013]
[By Brighton Mupangavanhu]
Costa Nhamoinesu in action for Zaglebie Lubin
Zimbabwean tall defender Costa Nhamoinesu's Polish Ekstraklasa club Zaglebie Lubin has continued with their ascendancy up Poland topflight football league's ladder, and are now sitting pretty on number 6 following their weekend 2-1 win over  Jagiellonia Bialystok in a match played on Friday night at Dialog Arena in Lubin.

The tall defender, as usual played the entire 90 minutes, and is always involved in the thick of things for his club, the very reason why he is regarded in some quarters in Lubin as Zaglebie's most prized asset in the past three seasons.

Zaglebie, used to fighting relegation in the past seasons, have suddenly struck a rich vein of form and are climbing the ladder, and may soon challenge for a place in the UEFA Champions League.

Nhaomoinesu was not the only Zimbabwean player enjoying a purple patch this weekend. Costa's fellow countrymen who have also been as evergreen as the Plonad-based star are Belgium-based Vusa Nyoni and  England based Bradley Pritchard.

Nyoni, a player who is respected and valued in Belgium for his work ethic, discipline, consistence and versatility, has been enjoying great form with Mons who are also climbing up the Pro-League ladder in that European country.

On Saturday Nyoni's Mons beat struggling Cercle Brugge, his former club before he switched to Germinal Beerschot. Nyoni enjoyed a 2-1 win away from home, making this the club's 4th victory in the last 5 games- a great club form by any standards! Mons are now in 7th place in a 16-team league.

Nyoni's compatriot Ovidy Karuru was not so lucky as he watched from the stands his club OH Leuven receiving a 0-4 baptism of fire at the hands of Belgian giants Standard Liege, who could have been venting their frustrations at having been beaten 0-1 at home by Nyoni's Mons four weeks ago.

In England, Pritchard's second tier club Charlton Athletics got back to winning ways, beating Huddersfield 1-0 away from home to move to 12th position on the log. With only nine games to go it may not be realistic for Charlton to dream of a place in the premiership play-offs. They could make a a big shout for a top eight finish, but a top six could be beyond them.

Pritchard, who played amateur football and never took professional soccer seriously until he joined Charlton, has become such an important player for the Addicks, and there are strong links with a move to one of the Barclays English Premiership clubs at the end of this season.

It is very surprising, if not shocking, that at a time when coach Klaus Dieter Pagels claims to be rebuilding, he ignores the best players available for Zimbabwe, players who are under 30, and are playing regularly at the highest level in Europe, while opting for bench-warmers from the ABSA premiership.

If there is an argument that Nyoni has had his chances with the Warriors, what excuse is there to ignore players like Pritchard and Nhamoinesu who have not yet been given a chance at national team level to prove what they can do for their country.
