MDC leader, Nelson Chamisa, sent a motivational message to the Zimbabwe senior men’s football team, the Warriors, ahead of Sunday’s showdown with Congo.
The national team faces Congo Brazzaville at National Sports Stadium in a crucial Afcon qualifier.
The game is so big, and the boys could seal their qualification to the finals on the last day, something they failed to do against the same opponents twenty-seven years ago.
Writing on Twitter on Saturday, Chamisa said:
National teams remind us that we one as a people. The warriors remind us we are fighters, that the battle is one and must be won. The outcome is one, our victory. We’re one with our men, for our nation. Proudly Zimbabwean, my duty is to support our best, the national team.
