Warriors ready to die on field for a result

[Posted 25 Mar 2011]
[By Brighton Mupangavanhu]
Warriors" captain Method Mwanjali is confident of a result in Mali tomorrow

Zimbabwe senior national team captain exemplified the bouyant mood in the Warriors's when he declared that his troops are ready to do battle on the Bamako battle field tomorrow and ensure that the team returns home with at least a result.

The Warriors will locked in a key battle against the West African giants Mali in the nation's capital Bamako on Saturday, with a mission to assume advantage in a 2012 African Nations Cup qualifying Group A.

Their opponents tomorrow, Mali, are currently lying second from pace setters Cae Verde who sit at 4 points, while Zimbabwe are just a point behind the Carthage Eagles. There is a real danger of falling further behind Cape Verde for either of the two opponents should they draw and  the log leaders beat Liberia this weekend.

Should that scenario happen this weekend and the Verdeans end the weekend on 7 points, Mali and Zimbabwe will find themselves three and four points adrift of log-leaders respectively.

That explains why Mwanjali is talking of the need to get maximum points against Mali tomorrow.

We are aware of the expectations of the nation and we will try to achieve that. We dont care who we are playing, all we need is to get maximum points, declared leader of the Warriors Mwanjali.

His team mate, Belgium-based Vusa Nyoni is equally upbeat about his team's chances against the West Africans in their own backyard.

We have a perfect environment to launch ourselves as the new Zimbabwe team here.

"We came here to win and a draw will be our worst result, the versatile midfielder who is expected to play on the left back position in tomorrow's game, said from Mali.

The Warriors' coach Norman Mapeza has announced a clean bill of health in camp ahead of this crucial tie tomorrow.

We emphasised on gelling up the team from the back to the attack. We want to defend and attack as a team.

"We want to be mobile against our physical opponents. Im happy with the response by the players. We have a clean bill of health and have nothing to complain about so far, said Mapeza.


The Zimbabwean delegation has, for a change no complaints to make against their hists, after receiving a good reception upon their arrival in Bamako on Thursday.

The hosting federation had officials on the ground, ready to welcome the visiting Zimbabweans when they touched down at the airport in Bamako, a gesture which ZIFA will be expected to reciprocate when the Malians visit Harare soon.
