Warriors coach Sunday ‘Mhofu’ Chidzambwa is not being blown away by the euphoric wind of excitement ahead of Tuesday’s second leg of the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations qualifier against the Democratic Republic of Congo at the National Sports Stadium.
The Warriors stunned the Central Africans 2-1 in Kinshasa on Saturday, and the nation is pregnant with huge expectations hoping to finish off the Congolese, but Chidzambwa is cautious.
“The match is not going to be easy for any of the two sides, having clashed recently. We are not going to stay back and let them attack us, we know they are going to come at us. But like what we did in Congo we are going to defend and attack. Like they say in football, attacking is the best form of defending,” said Chidzambwa.
The Warriors will be missing the captain Knowledge Musona who picked a red card in Kinshasa and have drafted in Rodwell Chinyengetere from FC Platinum.
A win for Zimbabwe coupled with a defeat for Congo Brazzaville in Liberia will see the Chidzambwa’s charges taking a tremendous step towards qualification for the Nations Cup which will be hosted in Cameroon next year.
