England-based Warriors defensive-linchpin Marvelous Nakamba said the 3-1 loss to Algeria was now water under the bridge and focus should be on tomorrow’s clash with the North Africans at the National Sports Stadium (NSS).
Nakamba told The Sunday Mail that the Warriors were confident of getting a positive result by using home advantage to their advantage. He said:
It’s good to be back at our home ground after such a long time. We just need to dust ourselves up, forget about Thursday’s result in Algeria and concentrate on the return leg at the National (Sports) Stadium.
It has been long since we last played at the National Sports Stadium and I am looking forward to doing well for my country. We always do well at home and we hope to keep that spirit on.
The 26-year-old Aston Villa man, who is the only player from Southern Africa in the English Premier League, said donning the gold and green Warriors strip is a privilege. He said:
Playing for Zimbabwe is an honour and I always try and do my best for my country. The sad part is that our fans, who have missed us so much, will not be allowed to watch the game on Monday (tomorrow), but that is the protocol.
