ZIFA tried to field a club in place of Mighty Warriors- reports

Following last Sunday’s fiasco which saw the senior women’s national soccer team, the Mighty Warriors, boycott their Olympic games qualifier against Zambia, it has emerged that ZIFA reportedly tried to field a club side in place of Sithelelelwe Sibanda’s charges.

The game was called off 30 minutes before kick off at the National Sports Stadium as the Mighty Warriors were in a no show, citing outstanding allowances tracable back to COSAFA Women’s Championship in South Africa.

According British Broadcasting Corporation (BBC), Zifa tried, though in vain, to field a club side in place of the Mighty Warriors once  players were reportedly withdrawn by their respective local clubs.

The report further alleges that in their defence, the Felton Kamambo-led ZIFA actually blames the players for Sunday’s disaster, inisisting that the association agreed with the players to pay them ZW$150 for the two legged affair, an agreement the players supposedly broke.
