Spread This News

HARARE City, still bubbling with confidence following their 3-1 victory over AS Adema of Madagascar which propelled them to the first round of the Caf Confederation Cup, face off city rivals Caps United in the ZNA Charity Shield at Rufaro on Sunday.
The Sunshine City boys will now meet Zanaco of Zambia, whom they host in Harare in two weeks.
But they still have to grapple with Harare giants, Caps United, for the right to play in the final of the ZNA trophy.
Bitter rivals Dynamos were booted out by ZPC Kariba after they were handed a 1-0 defeat at Rufaro on Sunday.
Harare City assistant coach, Mkuphali Masuku, said their focus was now on Caps United on Sunday.
“Our focus now is the game against Caps United on Sunday. We are ready for the match. The game will be balanced I think. We are playing in the Caf Cup and Caps United have been to Mozambique and played competitive matches there,” said Masuku.
Caps United team manager, Shakespear Chinogwenya, also said they were looking forward to the match. He said all their players were ready for selection apart from Simba Nhivi who had a tooth ache.
“All our players are available for selection except maybe Simba Nhivi who has a tooth ache. He might start training tomorrow but those available are ready for Harare City. If they apply what they have been doing in Mozambique, they will beat Harare City,” said Chinogwenya.
The Sunshine City boys will be hoping new signings from Dynamos defender, Blessing Moyo, and midfielders Ronald Chitiyo and Raphael Manuvire who joined from ZPC Kariba will carry their top form to the match against Caps United on Sunday.
Manuvire has been a revelation in the tournament since joining from the Kariba outfit. He has scored three goals in the campaign so far.
After playing Mozambique opponents, the Green Machine will use the match to gauge their readiness for the season against local teams.Advertisement
