Young Warriors battle Cameroon

The Zimbabwe U20 National side will host Cameroon in a tough African Youth qualifier set for the National Sports Stadium Stadium on Sunday.

The Cameroon side have made it a revenge mission for their Under 23 side who were stunned by Zimbabwe for a place at the All Africa Games.

Zimbabwe beat Botswana 2-1 on aggregate which earned them the right to face Cameroon whilst the young indomitable lions received a bye to the 2nd Round.

Young Warriors coach Jairosi Tapera says his team is ready for another giant killing act. On the other hand the Cameroon side will not be any pushovers as they have prepared thoroughly for the match. The team has been in camp for the past 3 months in what they say they dont want a repeat of what happened to their Under 23 side.

Tapera told the Chronicle that they will avoid the mistake they made in the first round which made their life hard for the return league away in Botswana. The young Warriors lost 1 nil at home before winning the return leg 2-0 in Botswana.
