Mighty Warriors progress in AWCN qualifiers

The Mighty Warriors are through to the last round of the African Women’s Cup of Nations (AFWCON) qualifier after drawing with Tanzania 1-1 at Rufaro Stadium.

The Mighty Warriors got off to a bad start when they conceded a penalty in the 4th minute after a hand ball. Tanzania converted from the spot to put Zimbabwe under pressure.

To their credit the Mighty Warriors responded well and equalised in the 11th minute with Daisy Kaitano shooting from a rebound.

The Mighty Warriors stamped their authority on the match as the match progressed. However lapses in defence almost allowed Tanzania to score.

In the second half Kaitano was unlucky not to score a second when she struck the bar. In the end the Mighty Warriors held out for the draw to win 3-2 on aggregate.

The result sees them face Zambia in the final round of qualifiers.
