THE Warriors defied the odds to demolish Malawi 3-0 and qualify for the first time in ten years to the 2017 African Cup of Nations finals in Gabon.
With Swaziland edging Guinea 1-0 in Mbambane, it meant the Warriors joined the party in Gabon with a game to spare. This means the Warriors’ next match against Guinea in Conakry on September 3 will be dead rubber.
This is because even if Swaziland beat Malawi in their last match they can only take their points tally to 11 the same as the Warriors who now top Group L. But with the qualifiers set to be decided on head to head, the Warriors who drew1-1 against Swaziland before walloping them 4-0 in Harare on Easter Monday, booked their seats at the African Nations Cup table.
Despite a sluggish start, Knowledge Musona thrust Zimbabwe into the lead after winning and converting a penalty in 15 minutes before Khama Billiat added the second with a cheeky goal.
