Soldiers fall duo | Herald

The Warrior technical team is forced to abandon the lost terror of the Dvukamanya and Byron Madzokere duo of their plans before the African Cup of Liberals is defeated.

The returns are only a little weeks before the Warriors flew to the West African country for the penultimate G team against Lone Star at the Samuel Kanyon Doe Sports Complex in Paynesville on November 18.

Dzvukamanja earns a back injury Bidvesti Vits wins Maritzburg United in the quarter-finals of the Telkom Knockout tournament, while Madzokere, who regularly received regular calls while still taking part in the AFCON qualification, was injured in the Yadah League game against Bulawayo City last weekend.

Zvukamanja, South Africa, won the last game against the Democratic Republic of Congo as the second half, as Zimbabwe played leopards to raise their group G at the top of the group by eight points.

Warriors team manager Wellington Mpandare said yesterday that the couple had to run because there would be no time to assess their injuries, because the team will not be in the camp in Zimbabwe.

Foreign players who make up most of the Warriors team are instructed to fly directly from Libya to their bases.

Mpandare said that next Thursday, three days before the match, players will face coach Chidambwu on Sunday and his technical team in Liberia.

"We did not want to risk the wounded with us, so these two guys are no longer in Liberia.

"Coaches did not see the need. It would be useful to call them and evaluate if we play at home.

"So, we're working with the 19 players we currently have, and then we'll see what's happening after the weekend's games. We do not exclude the possibility that more changes can occur if we face injuries," Mpandare said.

Warriors has backed off losses, such as Evans Rusike, who played Supersport cinema at the weekend, Tino Kadewere and goalkeeper George Cigov, who last month had earned knee injuries against the Democratic Republic of Congo.

Former captain Willard Katsand was also called for another call after he announced that he had quit his international retirement.

The midfielder of the sandy Kaierson boss managed to gain a huge boost in confidence when he grabbed the only goal in his side to win the Supersport United Telco demolition weekend.

Defender to serve Hadebe and ahead of Khama Billiat also played part of the leaders. But the greatest new news about Čidzambwu and his team was to take part in the Midway team's Marvelous Nakamba UEFA Champions League match when his Belgium-based club Brugge killed Thierry Henry in Monaco in the middle week.

Warriors led the group G with a three-point pillow above the second DRC with five points. With two playing times, they only need a point to secure their place next year at the AFCON finals in Cameroon.

The Warriors have had some compelling statistics from their four races in this campaign, where they scored each run since the first challenge against Liberia last year, ending with a 3-0 home win.

Even in the games that ended with damaged games, Zimbabwe has won all the games in all games and does not retreat from its opponents. They also remain the only team in the G-B group, winning with two victories and two signs. Warriors scored seven goals and recognized three.

Mpandare said they needed to organize their travel arrangements to be in good shape to get a positive result in Liberia.

"We hope to be in Liberia until November 15th (next Thursday). Most players need to be involved with clubs, possibly until Sunday evening, and earlier they can fly until Monday morning.

"They will still be on Tuesday, and probably the third one will arrive here in the last members of the team. That is when we should be in full team, and then on Thursday we will retreat.

"Therefore, we realized that if it first arrives in Zimbabwe, it will require too much, especially from European players.

"For some players, this would mean three days of uninterrupted travel, and this is very much a tax. With African flights, you know that you have to spend hours after hours to travel from one region to the next.

"Therefore, we think it's better that they fly more directly to Liberia from their bases, which is much easier.

"Coaches want all players to play the best physical and mental state," Mpandare said.
