Y/Warriors pay price for Cosafa woeful defending

Woeful defending by the backline led by captain Edwin Nkomo saw Zimbabwe book a plane back home after only two matches at the ongoing COSAFA Metropolitan Under 20 Championship in Botswana. The young Zim turks lost 2-3 to Angola on Monday.

In a must-win match  following a drawn first Group D match against Namibialast Friday, the Zimbabweans started off brightly, scoring first through England-based Trevor Mutero who responded well to a clever through ball from in-form Ronald Chitiyo.

Just moments later, Angola were level after the Young Warriors fell foul of great counter attack work from the Angolans. Afonso Eddie scored the equaliser from the counter attack after the Zimbabweans had lost possession in their own half.

Two quick goals later from Nicolou Adriano in the 43rd minute and Almeida Valdermar after 50 minutes completely turned the tables on the baby Warriors.

From the 3rd Angolan goal,  the match was a one-way traffic, with the Zimbabweans completely dominant as they searched for an equaliser. They were  rewarded for their efforts  through a  77th minute second goal which came from Marvelous Nakamba.

All the other efforts  expended by the hard-running Young Warriors produced no further goals, as the Angolans defended with every pound of flesh they have.

It was painful to see how the young boys dropped down their heads at the sound  of the final whistle,and some shed some tears as the reality of having to catch an early flight back home dawned on them.

Zimbabwe juniors' final Group D match against Madagascar will be a matter of fulfilling a fixture as only national pride will be at stake. Its all-over for the talented youngsters who have struggled to conquer  Southern Africa since 2007.
