Zimbabwe’s senior men football team, the Warriors are today playing Somalia in a 2022 World Cup Qualifier preliminary second leg match at the National Sports Stadium at 1500 hours.
The match will determine both define the destiny of Zimbabwean football and whether the country progresses to the qualifier stage after the Warriors embarrassingly lost 1-0 in the first leg.
Zimbabwe’s loss provoked the anger of local fans who say it was unexpected as Somalia is ranked the worst third on FIFA rankings.
The defeat marked a poor start to the tenure of new Warriors gaffer, Joey Antipas who recently took over from Sunday Chidzambga.
Antipas overlooked a number of experienced players in the first leg. He has since called up former Warriors vice-captain, Ovidy Karuru and Kaizer Chiefs forward, Khama Billiat as he intends to collect maximum points at all costs.
A win by a great margin can ensure the Alec Mudimu side a chance to participate at the world’s greatest soccer spectacle, the FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022.
GO WARRIORS GO!
