ZIFA have praised acting Warriors coach Norman Mapeza following a 0-0 draw against Zambia at the National Sports Stadium on Sunday.

The FC Platinum coach was appointed Warriors interim coach and given the responsibility to take charge of the team for the Zambia match.

Zifa said they would then make a decision to appoint a substantive coach after the match.

Warriors securing a draw against their northern neighbours, the soccer controlling body has given the strongest hint that they want Mapeza to guide the team on a substantive basis.

Zifa vice president Omega Sibanda said on Monday, “The position is that we are happy with Norman Mapeza. The match was played and he did well. So, we will be meeting in due course as an executive and make a decision."

After the Sunday match, Mapeza also said he would never turn down an opportunity to coach the national team if granted. He, however, insisted the decision lay with FC Platinum.

“It is FC Platinum which will decide. I can't make a decision because I am employed by them. But I can’t turn down the offer to coach the national team because it is a national cause,” he said.

The Warriors are expected to kick off their 2019 African Cup of Nations campaign in June.
