AWCON Qualifiers: Mighty Warriors Lose To Botswana At The National Sports Stadium

AWCON Qualifiers: Mighty Warriors Lose To Botswana At The National Sports Stadium

The Mighty Warriors lost 3-1 to Botswana in an Africa Women Cup of Nations (AWCON) Qualifier match played on Friday afternoon at the National Sports Stadium in Harare.

Zimbabwe’s Rudo Neshamba headed in the Mighty Warriors’ first chance but it was ruled out for an offside.

The first half ended with both teams tied at 0-0.

On return from the break, Botswana didn’t take long to break the deadlock, with Refilwe Tlholakele capitalising on a defensive mixup by the Mighty Warriors to find the back of the net.

The visitors came back again and doubled their lead on minute 71 through Lesego Radiakanyo.

Privilege Mupeti pulled one for the Mighty Warriors in the 85th minute, but the goal came in vain as Radiakanyo netted another one for Botswana on the stroke of full-time.

The scoreline saw the Zebra Ladies winning the first leg 3-1. In their previous encounter, the Mighty Warriors won 3-0.

The return fixture will be played in Francistown on 23 February, and the winner over both encounters will qualify for the 2022 AWCON finals in Morocco. 

The Mighty Warriors expressed frustration at the delaying tactics that were employed by the Lady Zebras saying they killed the tempo of the game.

Mighty Warriors XI: L. Magwede (gk), E. Msipa ©, N. Ncube, V. Mharadzi, D. Bhobho, E. Tumbare, E. Mutumbami, M. Nyaumwe, M. Mafuruse, R. Neshamba, R. Makore.
