The Warriors huffed and puffed in the first half with very few clearcut chances. They dominated the entire 45 minutes with the Somali goalkeeper making a few excellent saves to go to half time 0-0.
Zimbabwe drew first blood halfway in the second half when Munetsi scored an acrobatic goal from a corner kick. However, the lead was shortlived following a Somali goal against the run of play when Teenage Hadebe made a dreadful error to play the opposition through on goal.
Two quickfire goals in the final minutes of the match first from a deflected Muskwe free-kick and a Khama Billiat strike gave Zimbabwe the victory.
