Egypt 1 Zimbabwe 0. Well done Warriors, there was some flashes of brilliance from our goalkeeper Sibanda, Lunga & Karuru. We were too cautious against an Egyptian team playing below. After their goal from Musona mistake, we should have changed to offensive & attacking play #AFCON

Well played by Zimbabwe 🇿🇼 Warriors – 🎶vakomana vekwedu vanotamba kufanana neshumba🎶. A very good performance despite that one moment towards the end of the 1st half against a top host nation. Aluta continua to the next match #EGYZIM #Afcon2019 #Afcon19 @online_zifa @AFCON_2019 pic.twitter.com/rBXXRL6ctP

We could have gotten a positive result out of this game had the Warriors not been told to play for @edmnangagwa by that clown called Kazembe Kazembe, or is it Kanzimbe Kanzimbe. Zimbabweans don't want anything to do with ED, the Warriors aren't exceptions.

Surprised by how poor Egypt were, certainly NOT the favourites on that performance

#AfricanLivesMatter The warriors with less than 500 supporters in the stadium as compared to at least 50,000 Egyptians …..And a star-studded Egyptian team ..showed character . They were let down by poor finishing .BUT their heads are certainly held up very high! Well done&sorry
