zimbabwe-u23.jpgThe Zimbabwe’s Young Warriors beat South Africa’s Amagluglug 1-nil at Rufaro Stadium this Sunday afternoon but failed to qualify for the All Africa Games courtesy of a 1-2 aggregate loss.

Dynamos wonder kind, Archford Gutu headed in an Obey Mwerahari cross to put the Young Warriors in front just two minutes into the second half.

The Friday Phiri coached outfit pressed hard but failed to overturn a 2-nil deficit they suffered in South Africa two weeks back.

This meant the end of the Young Warriors’ qualifying campaign as the two more goals they needed to book a place for the Maputo games, proved elusive.

South African soccer officials acknowledged that the Young Warriors had trained hard and were not giving them a chance to penetrate.
