Mighty Warriors' shock loss in Maputo

Mighty Warriors" shock loss in Maputo

The Mighty Warriors, who recently were crowned COSAFA champions courtesy of that 1-0 victory over South Africa's Banyana Banyana, were surprisingly heavily defeated 4-1 by the same opponents at the on-going All Africa Games in Maputo yesterday.

If that defeat was not a sweet revenge for Banyana girls, then there is nothing like sweet revenge in the world.

The Zimbabwe coach says the heavy loss was a result of complacency by her girls who completed a highly successful tour of Germany recently.

“Their performance was nothing short of a disaster.

We missed nine clear-cut chances in the opening minutes and they thought they would overrun South Africa. They scored two quick goals and we never recovered.

In the second half we tried hard to come back into the match, but again we failed to convert the chances we created and we were punished on the other end.

We have put ourselves in a very tight situation as we now have to win our remaining two matches in our group to qualify for the next round,”  coach Rosemary Mugadza said.

The Mighty Warriors were undone by two quqick goals by the South Africans in the first half.

From the break, the Zim girls pressed their opponents in search of two quick goals. They only managed to expose their rearguard and conceded two more goals, while scoring only once through Marjory Nyaumwe.

Zimbabwe now have to win their remaining fixtures to qualify for the next round, something akin to a tall order, given the pedigree of their next opponents, Ghana.
