Cape Verde steals a point in Harare

[Posted 10 Oct 2010]
[By Brighton Mupangavanhu]
Warriors failed to use home advantage and drew 0-0 with Cape Verde on Sunday

Group A leaders going into this weekend's fixtures, Cape Verde, fought gallantly to come away with a point from Harare, after grounding out a goalless draw with the hosts, Zimbabwe in a Sunday Africa Nations Cup fixture.

Despite dominating the first half and second half, Zimbabwe's strikeforce of young striker Knowledge Musona and captain Benjani Mwaruwari could not provide the all important goals to give the hosts the three points they so badly needed to leapfrog the Blue Sharks and lead Group A standings.

Cape Verde's strategy of playing with a lone striker meant that the team almost defended with nine players. Zimbabwe created enough opportunities, but they were wasteful in front of goals.

The failure of the Musona-Benjani partnership upfront will renew the debate whether it is wise for the coaches to combine two players who are not well-known gun-slingers.

Nyasha Mushekwi, it has been argued, should be preferred for the gunman position when playing at home, while veteran skipper Benjani should be the preferred choice in away matches.

The result means that Zimbabwe are now 3rd on the log, and have been replaced on second position by Mali who narrowly beat Liberia to collect three points. Cape Verde top the standings with 4 points. The Blue Sharks look like a team that will be difficult to dislodge from the top.

This is really dissapointing, I thought having 2 coaches (same level) would help bring better ideas and results. Look how stupid we are to be repeating the same mistake of playing without a natural gunman all the time when we have one always on the bench.

Yes we need Benji, Musona and Sadomba to tomment the defenders, and of course Nyasha to finish off the job by slotting in the balls. Why cant our coaches see such a simple logic. In Monrovia it was the same, we were supposed to collect 3 points had we played without a gunman.

Now we have an uphill task when we play Mali in the next 2 games (March and June). No miracles I guess.
