Zim Warriors Players in great form

[Posted 10 Apr 2015]

Big Warriors striker Nyasha Mushekwi i back in the mix of things with a bang!




Zimbabwean players based in foreign soccer leagues through out the world are showing signs of picking up good form at the right time towards the end of the seasons for most of the leagues, and the beginning of some seasons for a few leagues.

There is good news for anyone who will be Warriors' coach when the team begins its campaign in the African Cup of Nations (AFCON) 2017 qualifiers due to begin in June this year. The form of key strikers, especially the Europe-based players is refreshing. Nyasha Mushekwi scored for his new Swedish Allsvenskan side Djugardens in a 1-1 draw with Hacken. Warriors' most consistent striker in the last three years, Knowledge Musona also scored for his club KV Oostende in a Belgian league league match which Oostende lost 1-2 against Lokeren last Friday. Musona's goal was his fourth league goal in eight appearances. 

Midfielder Silas Songani who appears to have been thrust in a forward position by his Danish Superliga side SonderjyskE, scored a goal in his club's 1-2 loss to Nordsjślland last Saturday. Another midfielder Khama Billiat, has been deployed by South African club Mamelodi Sundowns as a shadow striker and has responded by scoring crucial goals for the defending champions. Billiat has been in great form and news is that he is being tracked by French Ligue 1 giants Lille. Holding midfielder Willard Katsande remains a very consistent performer for Kaizer Chiefs, and even scored in a shock Nedbank Cup loss to Black Leopards. Denver Mukamba, who struggled for game time at Bidvest Wits last season, is back to his best for University of Pretoria (AmaTuks) in the ABSA premiership, ad has been scoring regularly now for AmaTuks. This includes his goal from a corner kick last weekend in a 2-2 draw against Bloemfontein. He was named man-of-the match for his feat in that match. Another player worth mentioning is Maritzburg United's left-back -come- midfielder Khumbulani Banda who has been playing fairly well for his new club. He is famous for scoring the goal which resulted in Chiefs' second loss in the league. Tendai Ndoro continues to be a dangerous and sought after striker in South Africa, but the sooner he moves to a bigger club like Orlando Pirates who are rumoured to be on the verge of signing him, the better for his club and international careers.

Other form players worth noting are current joint leading scorer in the South African premiership, the evergreen workhorse Cuthbert Malajila. His 10 goals are not a good testimony to scoring ability of strikers in South Africa right now (, but Malajila has provided the highest number of assist in the league due to his great work rate. Warriors defender Partson Jaure has been doing very well for AmaTuks where he is deployed almost anywhere in the back four. Still in SA, Kingston Nkatha is back from injury and is proving to be an important player for Supersport United, and will be an important addition to the Warriors too when qualifiers begin.

Costa Nhamoinesu has been evergreen for Sparta Praha in the Czech Republic's Liga and was voted best foreign player in the Czech Republic's topflight league  last season, an award he is likely to retain at the end of this season. Another worth mention is that of little known 25-year old Dzikamai Andre Gwaze who has been blowing a little hot and cold in the Polish league where he started for 7th placed Gornik Zabrze in a 2-2 draw against Ruch Chorzow. Forgotten veteran striker/midfielder Quincy Antipas is a consistent performer for Hobro in Denmark's topflight

The biggest concern is the non-activity of big Warriors defender and current captain Carlington Nyadombo who is facing uncertain times at Amazulu due to some spurious allegations raised by the club's supporters which are not even worthy mentioning.

On the goalkeeping side, big former Warriors keeper Energy Murambadoro has re-ignited his careers and chances for a return to the national team with his great performances for new club Amazulu FC in SA. At AmaTuks, evergreen keeper Washington Arubi continues to be a very important player for his club, breaking the record for most appearances for the club in its PSL history within a short space of time. 

It looks promising for the Warriors a few months before the beginning of the Afcon qualifiers.
