Stand-in Warriors skipper Alec Mudimu says leading Zimbabwe to the 2022 World Cup qualifiers group stage is a dream come true.

Joey Antipas’ charges booked a place in dramatic fashion, leaving it late courtesy goals from Marshall Munetsi, Knox Mutizwa and Khama Billiat, much to the delight of the Wales-based defender.

“It’s an amazing feeling, I thank everyone and God bless everyone,” Mudimu told¬†Soccer24¬†after the game.

“Of course it’s a dream come true and I’m so grateful that God has made my dreams come true, to lead my nation in any game whatsoever, let alone a World Cup qualifier is amazing. It’s a dream come true.”

“I thank the fans for always having my back and supporting me, I thank my family and friends and everyone that has been involved, it’s been a long journey,” he added.
