Stand-in Warriors captain Alec Mudimu has appealed for unity after the team’s shock defeat to minors Somalia in a World Cup 2022 preliminary round qualfier yesterday.

The Joey Antipas-coached side succumbed to a 1-0 defeat to the Somalians, their first victory in 15 games and the Wales-based defender called for togetherness not only within the team but the nation at large.

“Unbelievably dissapointing and simply not good enough to lose today’s game, but given the circumstances it’s very unfortunate we lost today. It’s very important we stick together not only as a team but as a nation and learn from our mistakes and bounce back,” posted Mudimu on microblogging site¬†Twitter.¬†

“It’s not over yet and we cannot afford any part in negativity. We rest up and go again for the next game. Also it was a huge honour to captain my beloved country for the first time and hopefully for many more to come.”

Mudimu also insists the team has all it takes to overturn the result.

“We have enough quality to bounce back and get that important win we very much need for our nation. So please let’s ask we stick together and continue to encourage and support through out. The best is yet to come,” he concluded.
