Warriors defender Alec Mudimu thinks the goalless draw against Botswana was a blessing in disguise as it has brought togetherness within the team.

Zimbabwe were held at home on Friday in their first match of the 2021 Afcon Qualifiers. They dominated the possession but failed to score as they finishedvthe game with a few chances on target.

The Warriors’ second match is against Zambia this evening and Mudimu believes the team can bounce back and win the tie.

He said: “It’s very disappointing when you dominate the game for so long, with so much possession, only to draw.

“Actually, it feels like a loss sometimes but we have dealt with it.

“It has brought more togetherness and camaraderie among the players. We know what we need to do in our game on Tuesday.

“We are more than prepared to bounce back and rectify the situation, but again its another point picked up so we can [also] pick up so many positives from that game [against Botswana].”

The encounter will be played at National Heroes Stadium in Lusaka. Kick-off is at 6 pm Zimbabwean time.
