Zimbabwe through to Cosafa Cup final after beating Lesotho in thriller

The Warriors are through to the finals of the 2017 edition of the Cosafa Cup that is currently underway in South Africa after beating Lesotho 4-3 in a thrilling match played on Thursday evening. In the final, Zimbabwe will meet Zambia on Sunday. Zambia beat Tanzania 4-1 in another semi-final.

Knox Mutizwa scored a hatrick while the other goal was scored by Talent Chawapiwa. Mutizwa scored in the 18th minute from a corner before Lesotho’s Motebang equalised in the 41st minute to send both teams level at halftime. Mutizwa scored his second in the 51st minute after pouncing onto a defence splitting pass from Chawapiwa. Chawapiwa scored his goal in the 64th minute before being substituted to make way for Mitchell Katsvairo.

Lesotho made it 3-2 in the 79th minute after the Warriors lapsed in concentration. However their joy was short-lived as Mutizwa scored his third and Zimbabwe’s 4th in the 82nd minute. Lesotho scored a penalty in extra time but the damage had already been done.
