Full-time 90 Mins
Its all over here at the national sports stadium. Zimbabwe beat Liberia by 3 goals to nil all through the smiling assassin, Knowledge Musona. The Warriors are now leading group G with three points and three goals. What a good start for Mapeza’s men. They played so well, capitalised on home advantage and yes the 3 nil win is deserving for the Musona captained team.
