The Mighty Warriors technical department says it is now focusing on the teamâ€™s techniques and tactics since the ladiesâ€™ fitness and endurance has greatly improved after the conditioning of the team during a rigorous two-week reconditioning programme.Mighty Warriors assistant coach, Johannes Chikaola, hinted that after the two-week camp, the womenâ€™s national team has now adopted the right mental and physical strength expected of them and the coaching department is now concentrating on ensuring that the team is technically strong.
â€œIt has been a tough two weeks of running and most of our players are now in shape, so beginning today, we are now focusing on teaching them the game techniques. With almost three more weeks we shall be perfectly ready for Zambia considering we need a resounding win since we are starting on home turf,â€ she said.
The technical team has also promoted some five U20 players into the senior team and Chikaola was quick to give his praise to the youngsters who have blended well into the senior national side.
She enthused, â€œWe took in captain Nobuhle Majika, Chido Dzingairai, Rudo Neshamba , Rufaro Machingura and Elizabeth Chaparangana to the senior team and they have blended well. In fact, they are giving a renewed flair to the whole team.â€
The Mighty Warriors will set alight their All Africa Games campaign with a date against their Zambian opponents on the 12th of February at Rufaro Stadium in Harare.
