The Zebras are due to play the Warriors of Zimbabwe in the quarterfinals of the on-going COSAFA Cup in South Africa today (Sunday) at Peter Mokaba Stadium.
The Zebras paved their way to the quarter finals after topping group B by beating Angola 1-0 and drawing 1-1 with Malawi before demolishing Mauritius 6-0 on Friday. The win against Mauritius was the highest margin ever scored by the Zebras against another country.
While David Bright’s men seem to have had it easy up to this stage, going up against Zimbabwe is not always an easy task for them. This is despite having recently defeated them 1-0 in Harare during the country’s independence celebrations. The tournament is seen as an important platform for regional member countries to prepare for international competitions such as the Africa Cup Nations qualifiers which are about to resume. None of the countries in the region have qualified for the World Cup that starts in Russia next week. The finals will be played on June 9, 2018.
