Warriors coach Sunday Chidzambwa has insisted that his charges will not change the style of play they used in the previous matches when they face Liberia in Monrovia this evening.
Zimbabwe need at least a draw to qualify for the 2019 Afcon Finals set for Cameroon. They are currently on top of Group G of the qualifiers with eight points while the opponents are at the bottom with 4.
“We are expecting a tough game against Liberia because they are playing at home, but we are not going to change our style of play. We will defend and attack and see what happens in the ninety minutes,” said the gaffer at the press conference yesterday.
“I know the hosts will be monitoring Knowledge (Musona), he is a good player and if given a chance, he will score, but that can only be known during the game.”
The Warriors captain scored a hattrick in the reverse fixture played in Harare last year. He was also on target against DRC to take his tally to four goals in this qualifying campaign.
The team conducted their first training at the venue on Friday and Chidzambwa was happy with the condition of the pitch.
“We trained at the venue yesterday (Friday), it was looking OK. In Congo Brazzaville and the DRC, they play on artificial turf but here it’s natural, so it will not be a problem for us as ours is natural too,” he added.
