Warriors Pick Up First World Cup Point

This is also Zimbabwe’s first point in four matches having lost to Cape Verde, Burundi in Africa Cup of Nations matches and to Guinea in a 2014 World Cup qualifier.

Zimbabwe are five points behind while Mozambique is still remain rooted at the bottom of the table.

The Zimbabweans had a goal from Denver Mukamba but it was disallowed.  Ovidy Karuru came failed to score even though a chance had opened.

The country is still cursing itself for missed chances against Guinea.

However, the convincing manner in which the Warriors played against Mozambique has given a ray of hope ahead of this weekend’s Africa Cup of Nations qualifier against Burundi.

The Zimbabweans trail Burundi 2-1 following a loss in Bujumbura in February. The team needs a 1-0 win to sail through to the final qualifying round.

But coach Rahman Gumbo, has hinted that they are not going for a narrow win but a convincing victory to bring back the fans’ faith in the team and also boost the confidence of the players for the assignments ahead.

Zimbabwe are desperate to qualify for the finals in South Africa having missed out of the African football festival in 2008, 2010 and this year’s finals, which were held in Gabon and Equatorial Guinea.
