Young Warriors draw with Namibia

The Young Warriors of Zimbabwe played to a 1-1 draw against last year's COSAFA Metorpolitan Under 20 Championships finalists Namibia  in Molepole, Botswana on Friday.

A match pitting two teams who reached semi-finals last year was always bound to produce fireworks,and indeed the match never disappointed as the teams matched each other for speed, skill, and indeed pound for pound as they say.

It was a match which was characterised by great attacking flair from the flanks by Zimbabwe, with Willard Kalongoda doing some superb running on the wing, while Mike Sinvula troubled the Young Warriors on the left channel of the Namibian midfield.

Though the teams were fairly balanced through outthe match,it is the young Brave Warriors of Namibia who had clearer chances to take the lead in the first half. 

After surviving a Zimbabwe scare in the 12th minute, Namibia attacked the Zimbabwean goal on a counter attack,and Tonderai Mateyaunga made a heroic save which left him wreathing in agony.

Nqibizitha Masuku was impressive for Zimbabwe in the first half, but every attack he initiated was wellcut out by the Namibians.

Petrus Shitembi should have put Namibia ahead in the 28th minute but the upright pole denied him after he had beaten the impressive Mateyaunga.

It was Zimbabwe's turn to miss a great chance from a free kick in the 31st minute,when they drove it into the wall.

Mateyaunga was called to make crucial saves for Zim towards the end of the first half where Namibia dominated.

The young Brave Warriors duly took the lead in the 51st minute after Zim captain Edwin Nkomo's failure to do the basics of defending allowed Hendriks Somaeb to beat Mateyaunga with a beautiful low shot.

It was 1-0 to Namibia and Zimbabwe had to chase the game now. What an exciting match it was turning out to be.

Eight minutes later, when Roy Mwenga connected a Charles Mukanhaira headed corner to level matters for the Young Warriors.

The match ended with a share of spoils for two good teams of Group D.
