Botswana 0-0 Zimbabwe

The much depleted  and travel-weary Zimbabwe  senior national  soccer team played to a 0-0 draw  against hosts Botswana at the Botswana National Stadium on a Saturday afternoon in Gaborone.

The match kicked off at 16h30 Botswana time and a full strength Zebras' side failed to dominate a make-shift Warriors team, a team that was hit by a poor organisation from the mother body which saw about 18 foreign-based players withdrawing fromthe squad before  it left for Gaborone.

Coach Norman Mapeza, was frustrated by poor organisation and was forced to hunt for players from teams that were beginning to prepare for the CAF Champions League and Confederations Cup competitions later this  year.

To make matters worse, a teamof make-shift players from FC Platinum and Dynamos had to travel by road from Harare to Gaborone and never had a decent practice session before Saturday's friendly match.

Botswana, who are preparing for their first ever Africa Cup of Nations appearance, are using the match as their laast preparatory encounter before leaving for Gabon.

The Zebras have been preparing for the AFCON finals in Rustenburg South Africa for the past two weeks. The only discord in their team pertained to a bonus row on Thursday, with the players demanding what they were promised for qualifying for the finals and daily allowances during camping.

It appears the problem was sorted out and the players managed to meet their neighbours Zimbabwe in a friendly,which ended goalless.

More details to follow.
