Warriors lose further ground in Group A

[Posted 26 Mar 2011]
[By Brighton Mupangavanhu]
Warriors lost 0-1 to Mali on Saturday night, 26 March

Mali beat the Warriors of Zimbabwe 1-0 at the March 26 Stadium in Bamako to move closer to Group leaders Cape Verde who themselves won convincingly against Liberia at home.

The goal which seperated the two sides was scored by Cheick Diabate, and that victory is good news for the underachieving Malians, who are desperate to live up to their billing, given the galaxy of their stars in their team.

For Zimbabwe, it is the same boring story of going back to the drawing board, and restrategise for the return leg in June.

Beating Mali at home was always going to be a tall order for the Zimbabweans who are perenially under-prepared for matches of this magnitude.

While the Malians were losing 0-1 to Didier Drogba's Cote D'Ivoire in France during the last FIFA friendly match date, the Warriors' players could only wish they had a similar opportunity.

The Zimbabwe Football Association might be forgiven for being broke every year, but there hasn't been any attempt to show creativity on the part of the national soccer governing body.

Even the coach was appointed a day before he was expected to announce the squad for this match.

Sometimes we expect miracles from players and coaches without creating the necessary conditions for such miracles to happen, if ever soccer teams qualify by miracles alone.

Until such a time that Zimbabwe begins to prepare for major games differently from what is happening currently, until such a time ZIFA gets  more creative minds and not always mourn about lack of funding from the corporate world, we will continue to have unrealistic expectations of the players and coaches.

Well done to the boys for the gallant fight they put up in Bamako on Saturday night, despite the loss!

With better preparations, we all know that you are real Warriors who can bring back the smiles to the success starved nation.
