Zim­babwe cruise to fifth Cosafa ti­tle

The Star Early Edition - - SPORT -

Chawapiwa was the one who was hav­ing the most of fun on the right wing, giv­ing Lawrence Chungu all sorts of prob­lems, while Karuru, who started in the No. 10 role, left his mark­ers eat­ing dust each time he was on the move.

The War­riors’ first goal though, came through an as­sist from their right-back Eric Chipeta. The de­fender hoofed the ball for­ward with a well weighted long pass to con­nect with striker Knox Mu­tizwa who was in the box to fin­ish the chance off.

The cen­tre-for­ward out-jumped the op­po­si­tion’s ‘keeper, who came off his line for an at­tempted save, and di­rected the ball into the back of the net with a well taken header.

Chipolopolo, which trans­lates Cop­per bul­lets, fired blanks from the most part of the first pe­riod of the match. How­ever, they were able to pull one back go­ing into the half-time break through their striker Lu­binda Mun­dia, who struck in a su­perb shot from a free-kick.

In the sec­ond pe­riod, Zim­babwe came out fir­ing as they tried to re­store their lead. And they did that just six min­utes into the sec­ond half when Chawapiwa scored their sec­ond of the match and Ocean Mushure added a third.
