Prophetic Healing and Deliverance founder Walter Magaya has revealed that he played in the Zimbabwe Legends match, despite never having played professional football because the heavens had qualified him. Magaya came in on as a subject in a match in which the Zimbabwe Legends drew 2-2 against the Barcelona Legends at the National Sports Stadium on Sunday. Explaining why he played, Magaya said:
It is true that I am one of the unheralded soccer players in Zimbabwe but the heavens qualified me to play today and I am happy that I participated in the scoring of our second goal.
I play soccer every day so does Walter junior and this was part of our ministry and PHD came in numbers after learning that I was going to play.
…By coming in their numbers PHD was preaching peace and many learnt a lot when they watched me giving others a chance to play and do my best when I was asked by the coach to play.
Magaya’s cameo has generated a lot of discussion and debate from football and non-football fans alike. Here are some of the reactions.
