Warriors coach Kallisto Pasuwa says his boys were jittery following the Warriors 2-0 loss to Senegal.
The Lions of Teranga showed absolute class to devour the hapless Warriors mercilessly throughout the match.
Two goals in the opening 15 minutes of the game was all Senegal needed to stroll to the quarterfinals, though Zimbabwe had only Tatenda Mukuruva to thank for keeping the scores respectable.
Speaking after the match, a visibly shaking Pasuwa vowed the Warriors will go back and pick positives into the last make or break encounter against Tunisia.
“We were unsettled in the first 20 minutes. It was two quick goals that unsettled the team and our boys were jittery too. But for the two early goals, we would have seen some good football from my boys,” said Pasuwa.
“The Senegalese were very physical and due to that one of my key players, Khama (Billiat) was running away from receiving balls. This is the kind of football you should expect at this level. We lost but it is not over.” he added.
Zimbabwe who are rooted at the bottom of Group with a single point can still qualify if they manage to beat Tunisia while Senegal beat or draw against Algeria in the last match.
