Bucs Star Features As Zim Edge Closer To Afcon

Zimbabwe edged closer to securing a spot at the 2022 Africa Cup of Nations with 1-0 victory away to Botswana on Thursday evening.

Orlando Pirates striker Terrence Dzvukamanja led the attack alongside former Kaizer Chiefs star Knowledge Musona while Onismor Bhasrea, Ovidy Karuru ansd Kudakwashe Mahachi were also handed starts.

The kick-off was initially delayed as the visitors were reportedly waiting for their Covid-19 test results as they had only done the test on Thursday morning.

It took a while for the Warriors to get going, as they had to wait until the 14th minute as Perfect Chikwende capped his national team debut with a goal.

Below are 15 African players who will not be allowed to play in AFCON qualifiers over the next two weeks! 

Zimbabwe enjoyed most of the ball in the first half but were unable to add to that tally while Botswana posed no real threat to goalkeeper Talbert Shumba.

The Warriors were able to deny the Zebras in the second half to record a clean sheet and three points which takes the side to eight points, two points behind Algeria who face Zambia later Thursday evening.

Zimbabwe will face Zambia in their final group H clash while Algeria travel to Botswana on Monday evening.
