South African politician Julius Malema believes Zimbabwe put a great show despite going down 1-0 to Egypt in the 2019 Afcon opener on Friday.

Mahmoud Trézéguet scored the only goal of the match in the 41st minute as the Pharaohs cruised to a hard-fought narrow victory at the packed Cairo International Stadium.

Meanwhile, the Friday’s match was the second meeting between the two sides at an Afcon tournament, with the first one coming in 2004 in Tunisia which ended 2-1 in favour of the North Africans.
