Mighty Warriors take on Zambia in AWCN qualifiers

A depleted Mighty Warriors squad face Zambia in a African Women Cup of Nations qualifier this afternoon at Rufaro Stadium.

The two legged tie is the last qualification stage of the competition. The second leg will be away in Zambia at the weekend.

However the Olympics bound Mighty Warriors will have to do without key players Rudo Neshamba (injury) and Eunice Chibanda (suspension).

However despite the absence of the two players Mighty Warriors head coach Shadreck Mlauzi believes his squad has what it takes to do well against Zambia.

“They system is bigger than the individual he said. We believe as a technical team when we assemble a 30 member squad ,every player called into camp should be ready.

Mlauzi said the their target would be to a get a good goal cushion to carry into the second leg.
