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.
