Warriors’ captain, Knowledge Musona has expressed disappointment with the team’s failure to convert their chances in their 1-all draw with Uganda in Egypt last night.
Victory against Uganda would have seen Zimbabwe placing their destiny in their own hands, but it was not to be after the Warriors’ frontline missed clear cut opportunities in a contest which saw Zimbabwe settling for a point.
Khama Billiat cancelled out a strike by Uganda’s Emmanuel Okwi and Zimbabwe could have collected maximum points had they been sharper upfront.
Captain Musona, who has been subject to criticism on social media after missing a sitter, was visibly disappointed with Zimbabwe’s inability to take the chances that came their way.
Coach, Sunday Chidzambwa admitted morale in camp was low following the 1-all draw but pointed out the need for Zimbabwe to pick themselves up and focus on the next assignment against the DRC on Sunday.
A convincing win over the DRC could still see the Warriors progressing as Group B runners up if Egypt beet Uganda.
In the event that the Warriors’ win against the DRC is not convincing enough, Zimbabwe can also still progress as one of the four best 3rd placed teams that will qualify for the last 16.
