Local football fans have expressed their disappointment at poor officiating in Zimbabwe’s nil-all draw against Madagascar in a COSAFA Castle Cup encounter at the Royal Bafokeng Stadium yesterday.
Dominant talk surrounded controversial Botswana referee Joshua Bondo who denied the Warriors two clear penalties towards the end of the COSAFA cup encounter.
First it was Raphael Manuvire who was brought down with minutes till the final whistle before an even clearer call saw Ovidy Karuru being denied a spot kick.
After yesterday’s drama local fans were fuming over the performance of Botswana’s referee.
Other fans said focus should also be on the technical team coming up with a cohesive unit that can challenge for the COSAFA crown.
Zimbabwe won their opening encounter against Mozambique 4-nil before being held to a goalless draw by Madagascar.
Following yesterday’s disappointment the Warriors are now set to shift focus to tomorrow’s decisive game against the Seychelles.
