Mighty Warriors ready


ZIMBABWE’S Mighty Warriors are ready for their clash with Angola this weekend and will seek to take advantage of Angola’s quick tiring weakness in order to win the fi rst round second leg qualifi er of the All-Africa Games. The clash scheduled for this weekend in Harare at Rufaro Stadium has seen the team stepping up its preparations for the game as they recently played a local men’s team, SR Villa, in a friendly match in the capital. SR Villa has assisted the Mighty Warriors to improve physical fi tness and ball possession, something that will be crucial for their clash this weekend. One of the preparatory games played against SR Villa saw the Mighty Warriors winning 2-1 and boosted their confi dence ahead of their clash with Angola. Soccer-loving Zimbabweans said Sunday’s match was vital for the Mighty Warriors since they drew one-all in the fi rst leg. The technical team led by Rosemary Mugadza earlier in the week indicated that much emphasis had been placed on the physical fi tness of the team and working on preventing off-sides, a weakness that was realised in previous matches. Assistant coach Maxwell Jongwe was confi dent that if the team had good ball possession and kept the Angolans running, the Mighty Warriors would be guaranteed of a victory which would see them stamping their authority in women’s football in Africa. With morale high in the camp, the Mighty Warriors have remained steadfast in their quest to dominate womens football in the region. Zimbabweans interviewed by The Patriot insisted that it was crucial for football fans to throng Rufaro Stadium in support of the womens squad. They said this would motivate the players in order to achieve the desired results vital for the progression of the squad and the development of women’s football in the country. “We must all go and rally behind our Mighty Warriors because besides being a very formidable team, they also need our support,”said Garikai Chauke from Harare’s Mufakose high-density suburb.
