Blame games might not do any good towards today’s match, but the Warriors poor performance on Friday boils down to poor tactical systems being implemented by the coach.

The Warriors had to come from behind and grab a point away from home in a match they could have collected maximum points which were very well within their reach.
Upon their arrival back home from Swaziland, national broadcaster, ZBC TV, held an interview with Kalisto Pasuwa.
Pasuwa was however defensive of his blunders but the more he tried to shield them, the more he exposed himself.
As screened by the Supersport, the Warriors employed a twin Defensive Linkmen system, but Pasuwa refuted the claims.
“Danny Phiri was not partnering Katsande on the D-Link, but was rather playing in front of Bute, meaning he had a different role,” explained Pasuwa.
The football fraternity is left wondering why the highly rated coach act as such.
It is because of these lame tactics that the Warriors ended up with a disbanded midfield, after employing at least 3 strikers in the caliber of Musona, Mushekwi, and Rusike.
As it stands, it appears that Pasuwa opt to assign roles to players rather than getting natural players for a particular position.
Eric Chipeta is another Warrior who have quoted controversy from the footy lovers across the country after he chased shadows the whole afternoon as he was operating way below expectations.
Pasuwa has however showed signs of corrections to his mistakes after calling back Caps United defender, Hardlife Zvirekwi, to his camp together with Marshal Mudewe.
The duo were not part of the traveling crop that went to Swaziland.
Today all roads will lead to the giant National Sports Stadium were the Zimbabwe National Soccer Team will host the Isihlangu of Swaziland in a 2nd leg tie of the 2017 AFCON qualifier match.
A straight win for the Warriors will earn them a pole position in the Group L.
