Teenage Hadebe’s mistake almost cost the Warriors in the World Cup Qualifiers on Tuesday, but the defender has promised to avoid such incidents in future.
The Turkey-based centre-back gave away the ball at the back, and it resulted in Somalia getting the precious away goal.
The Warriors were leading 1-0 courtesy of Marshall Munetsi’s effort before the mistake happened. They were now in need of two more goals within six minutes to progress to the group stage.
But Knox Mutizwa and Khama Billiat went on target before the full-time to secure a 3-1 victory which sent the team to the next round.
Speaking after the game, Hadebe explained that the mistake was due to some communication breakdown with Alec Mudimu.
“It is part of the game, but it can’t always be like that,” said Hadebe, according to The Herald.
“I made a mistake after some communication breakdown involving me and captain (Alec Mudimu), but it’s part and parcel of the game.
“I will strive to do much better in the next assignments.”
