Zim See Off Malawi

Zimbabwe moved into the semi-finals of the Cosafa Cup with a 3-1 penalty shootout win over 10-man Malawi on Saturday. The game had ended 1-1 in regulation time.

James Sangala was sent off for Malawi towards the end of the first-half for a second bookable offence and despite the Warriors enjoying the better of play, Malawi would equalise late on.

Masimba Mambare fired Zim ahead 13 minutes into the game but they would go on to waste a number of chances before conceding.

The game went to penalties where Zimbabwe goalkeeper Maxwell Nyamupanedengu was the hero with some great saves to keep the Warriors on course to defend the title.

Malawi went close with an early header but Zimbabwe hit the front when Mambare fired home after a free-kick fell to him in the area.

Tendai Ndoro wasted a chance in the 27th minute while Mushure burst forward brilliantly before the break but his final shot was lacking.

Sangala was then given his marching orders and, Zimbabwe pushed to wrap up the game after the break. Charles Sibanda should have done just that with 17 minutes to go but he failed to hit the back of the net while Josephy Kamwendo and Ronald Chitiyo then missed chances.

They would rue those misses when Nyamupanedengu made a terrible mistake to gift Malawi an equaliser through Chukepo Msuwoya but the Zimbabwe stopper made amends in the shootout with a terrific showing to send Zimbabwe through.
