Zimbabwe launched their campaign for a record fifth Cosafa Cup Southern African championship title by thrashing Mozambique 4-0 on Monday at Moruleng Stadium in north west South Africa.
Ovidy Karuru scored in each half before goals from Ocean Mushure and Blessing Majarira wrapped up a convincing Group B win on a cold southern hemisphere winter night.
Victorious coach and former national team captain Sunday Chidzambwa was happy to secure three points, but believed the Warriors should have triumphed by a wider margin.
“You have to be happy as the coach of a team that has won by four goals, but we missed a lot of scoring chances, especially during the opening half.”
Mozambique coach and former Liverpool, Everton and Portugal defender Abel Xavier said the result was a harsh learning curve for his young, experimental team.
“What pleased me was the effort of each player. No Mozambican was hiding on the pitch. We will learn from our mistakes and improve as the tournament progresses.”Advertisement
