Malawi 1-4 Zimbabwe
THE Warriors thumped the Flames of Malawi 4-1 in an international friendly encounter at Kamuzu Stadium in Blantyre on Wednesday afternoon as they began their Afcon 2015 qualifiers preparations.
Peter Moyo opened the scoring for the visitors for his first goal in Warriors colours after 20 minutes of play before Atusaye Nyondo ensured parity with a sliced header in the 50th minute that went beyond the reach of goalkeeper Washington Arubi.
But Kudakwashe Mahachi connected with a half volley from a Knowledge Musona cross to restore Zimbabwe’s lead.
Kingston Nkhata then broke through to make it 3-1 before tapping in a Mahachi cutback from the by-line at the second attempt to make it 4-1.
Meanwhile, former Highlanders striker and Warriors fringe player Obadiah Tarumbwa has become the fourth Zimbabweans player in less than a year to find the going tough after being offloaded by his Absa Premier Soccer League side Pretoria University.
He is reportedly on his way to re-unite with Bantu Rovers as free agent.
Tarumbwa joins the Dynamos trio of Simba Sithole (Supersport United and Mamelodi Sundowns), Tafadzwa Rusike, formerly of Ajax Cape Town and Oscar Machapa from Moroka Swallows who have had to retrace their steps in a bid to revive their careers.
