Warriors through to CHAN 2016

The Warriors have qualified for the CHAN 2016 tournament after drawing 1-1 with Lesotho in Maseru this afternoon.

The result gives Zimbabwe a 4-2 aggregate victory over the two legs after winning the first leg 3-1.

Dynamos striker Rodreck Mutuma continued where he left from in the first leg when he scored the opener in the 37th minute.

The Warriors had a good start imposing themselves well and creating chances as they controlled the game.

At halftime Zimbabwe lead 1-0.

Lesotho pulled one back with just under 15 minutes to go via the penalty spot.

Zimbabwe were awarded a penalty with ten minutes to go.

Blessing Moyo stepped up to take the penalty and put the ball into the back of the net but the referee ordered a retake. Moyo’s second attempt saw him shoot over bar.
