It actually happened. Zimbabwe have broken a 10 year jinx to qualify to the AFCON 2017 finals to be held in Gabon – January next year. The Warriors beat Malawi 3 nil while Swaziland beat the closest rivals Guinea in Mbabane. Unbelievable. Here’s how the world is reacting to the news.

Absolutely delighted for @WillardKatsande… Must feel incredible to be the first captain to lead Zimbabwe to an AFCON in a decade.
