The Zimbabwe national soccer team played out to a goalless draw against Zambia at the National Sports Stadium this afternoon.
Zimbabwe settled into the game early but it was Zambia that looked dangerous and came close on a number of occasions in the first half. Edmore Sibanda made good saves while the defence partnership of Dennis Dauda and Parston Jaure was one of the positives for the Warriors. The midfield of Rodreck Chinyengetere , Liberty Chakoroma and Ronaldo Chitiyo struggled to provide anything for lone striker Prince Dube.
Zambia continued their momentum in the second of half as the Warriors survived repeated waves of attacks. Jackson Mwanza had a great chance to put the Zambians ahead but his header went just wide. In the 81st minute, Mwanza went even closer when he beat Edmore Sibanda before shooting towards an empty net before Dauda came to the rescue and just managed to clear off the line. In the 83rd minute, a rare Warriors break against the run of play saw Ronald Chitiyo shot force a save from Kennedy Mweene. Zambia continued to attack but Norman Mapeza’s men held on to clinch a draw.
