Warriors coach, Zdravko Loga Logarušić has hinted on changing the Warriors team that lost 3-1 to the Desert Foxes of Algeria on Thursday.
The two teams clash for the second leg of the AFCON qualifiers on Monday at the National Sports Stadium and Loga wants a win “at all costs.”
Loga observes that the Warriors had a couple of chances which they blew away. He attributes the loss to lack of preparedness and match fitness in general, but believes his team could have come away with a point had they not respected their opponents too much. He said:
Obviously, I am disappointed by the result. I know we made some mistakes but we should have scored goals if we had taken our chances. I will pick the positives going forward. We respected them too much and going forward we need to play the game on merit and I think we will also change the formation at home, we will see what suits us better. You saw when we changed the system, in the second half, it worked very well and we were pegging them back.
The Warriors, who arrived back in Harare on Friday trained today and will have another training session on Sunday before they lock horns with Algeria on Monday.
