Football supporters say the Warriors’ chances of qualifying for the 2017 Afcon finals are still bright despite their failure to beat Guinea at Rufaro Stadium on Sunday.
Zimbabwe drew 1-1 with Guinea, but have the same number of points with log leaders Swaziland, who drew 2-2 with Malawi.
And it was refreshing to see a large crowd turn up at Rufaro as the Warriors battled Sylie Nationale on Sunday.
Despite failing to win the match, the majority of fans gave credit to Zimbabwe’s attacking display. Others were however disappointed by Washington Arubi, whose second minute blunder gave the West Africans an undeserved lead.
But for others, the Warriors’ bench led by Callisto Pasuwa fell short in making crucial technical decisions.Sunday’s 1-1 draw saw Zimbabwe drop to second position after Swaziland and Malawi drew 2-2.
The Warriors are on 4 points, but have scored less than Swaziland who top Group l. Zimbabwe’s next challenge is an away encounter against Swaziland in March next year.
Zimbabwe then host Isihlangu in June before playing another home encounter against Malawi before finishing the qualifiers with a return match away to Guinea.
