Dynamos lose in Tunisia, CAPS' mountain to climb

[Posted 01 Aug 2010]
[By Brighton Mupangavanhu]
Dynamos lost 0-1 to Esperance in Tunisia


Dynamos lost to Esperance of Tunisia through a controversial 78th minute penalty on Saturday in their second match of the Champions League Group A match.

The Glamour Boys felt robbed of a deserved point or even victory at the Stade de Rades yesterday, when defender George Magariro was adjudged to have brought down striker Dagarri in the penalty box. Esperance scored from the spot.

DeMbare coach Elvis Chiweshe bemoaned the manner in which his team had lost in Tunisia,but vowed to keep on fighting until the end of the campaign.

“It’s a sad day for African football, the referee decided the outcome. We will keep fighting until the last game”, complained the man they called 'Chuchu' during his playing days.

Dynamos could have taken the fate into their own hands rather than leaving it to the Togolese referee had they utilised the chances which fell their way. Cuthbert Malajila, Desmond Maringwa and Farai Vimisayi were guilty of missing good chances to give the Harare giants something to smile about.

The Zimbabwean representatives have now lost their second match in a row in Group A, having lost at home to African Club champions TP Mazembe in the opening fixture of their group two weeks ago. The loss leaves them at the foot of Group A.

Meanwhile, CAPS United face a huge mountain to climb as they see to wipe off a 0-5 deficit in the CAF Confederations Cup, after crashing away in Sudan against Al Hilal. Makepekepe face the same opponents in the return leg today at Rufaro Stadium.

CAPS will need to score six goals without reply from the Sudanese giants, a task which CAPS management admit will prove difficult to execute.

“Inasmuch as we want to be optimistic, we have to be realistic, 5-0 is a huge deficit to overturn but our aim is to play very well”, said CAPS Team Manager Wilson Mutekede.

The Green Machine has lost key players in defence, midfield and attack through sales to South African Clubs. Method Mwanjali, a pillar of defence for many years, midfield dynamo Lionel Mtizwa an striker Nyasha Mushekwi have joined big-spenders Mamelodi Sundowns. Two other midfielders, impact player Tafadzwa Rusike and Oscar Machapa have been lost to Ajax Cape Town and Moroka Swallows respectively. Any team will struggle after losing such key players.
