Warriors striker Tinotenda Kadewere has blamed the pitch and climate for losing to Libera on Sunday but promised a better performance in the last game of the qualifying round in March next year.
Kadewere was in the starting XI when Zimbabwe conceded their first defeat of the campaign. The player had a bad outing on the day missing several chances that came on his way.
According to H-Metro, the France-based forward says they will fight as a team to qualify for the 2019 finals in Cameroon.
“It’s part of the game but will fight back in the next game. I think the game was tough, but we had upper hand and could have got good points out of it.
“We were in the driving seat considering that we put them under a lot of pressure, but we were just not on the bright side.
“We had our chances, yes, but the pitch and climate were not very polite,” he said.
The Warriors are still on top of Group G with eight points while Liberia moved to the second place with seven. They need at least a draw to qualify in the next match against Congo Brazzaville at home.
