Warriors coach Sunday Chidzambwa is happy with the 1-1 result they achieved against Congo on Sunday but says they could have scored more goals in the first half of the game.

Khama Billiat netted Zimbabwe’s only goal in the 22nd minute before Thievy Bifouma equalised for the hosts five minutes into the second half.

Chidzambwa’s charges still remain on top of Group G with four points, thanks to a better goal difference over DRC who are in the second position.

“I think the guys played well in the first half and in my view that performance deserved at least, two or more goals, but we couldn’t take all our chances,” the coach told The Herald.

“Those missed opportunities gave them a chance to come back.

“In the second half, they seized control of the midfield up until we introduced Tafadzwa Kutinyu (for Kuda Mahachi) and we improved and matched them again.

“We had another brilliant chance to score again with Knowledge, (Musona) but those things happen in football.

Chidzambwa also revealed that his players complained about the condition of the pitch which gave them pains in ankles.

“But, overall, I think the guys tried their best, they were complaining that the artificial pitch was slowing the ball and they also complained of pain in the ankles,” the coach added.
