CAPS dismiss Ferroviario of Mozambique 2-0 in friendly tie

CAPS United coach Lloyd Chitembwe has showered his team with praises after they defeated Ferroviario Beira of Mozambique at the National Sports Stadium on Sunday.

The Zimbabwe Champions secured victory through goals by Abbas Amidu on 30 minutes before substitute Amon Kambanje added another after he was sent through by former Harare City forward Ronald Chitiyo.

Former FC Platinum defender Last Sithole was also given a run by Chitembwe who said he was not reading much into the result of the match but was giving attention to the physical conditioning of the players.

Former Dynamos goalkeeper Willard Manyatera kept goal for the visitors but could not prevent his side from defeat.

The visitors launched a series of raids in their opponents’ goal and carved out good chances but failed to break down a resolute Caps United defence. Their danger man-Nelito- proved a difficult customer and was unlucky to have finished the match without scoring a goal.

“For now we are not really looking at performance. We are looking at the aspect of conditioning. The endurance aspect is there but the element of speed is not there. The speed of thought, the speed of reaction and speed of execution but, generally, I am happy with the desire and commitment shown by these players,” said Chitembwe.

He added, “It’s a process. We have been in camp for two weeks. We still have three more weeks to assess the team. Every match and every single training session means a lot to the team and this match has really helped us."

Chitembwe also praised his new players-Chitiyo and Sithole.

Caps United will kick off their Champions League tournament with a date against Lesotho champions Lioli in the preliminary stage next month. If they overcome Lioli, they will face off African football powerhouses TP Mazemben of DRC.

The preliminary round ties of the Caf Champions League have been scheduled for the weekends of February 10 to 12 and 17 to 19.
