IT was a win­less week­end for most Zim­bab­wean play­ers play­ing their trade in Europe, with only Knowl­edge Mu­sona and Costa Nhamoinesu’s Bel­gian and Czech Repub­lic sides reg­is­ter­ing wins.

All en­joyed game time ex­cept for­mer Harare City winger Si­las Son­gani, who was not even on the bench when his Den­mark Su­perliga outfit Son­der­jyske was wal­loped 0-4 by Brondy.

Mu­sona was on tar­get in the Jupiler League as KV Oos­tende beat Mouscron Peruwelz 2-1.

The War­riors’ hit­man scored a 73rd minute penalty to open the scor­ing for his side, with Adam Maru­sic hit­ting the win­ner seven min­utes from full­time.

In the Czech Liga, for­mer AmaZulu strong­man Nhamoinesu played the whole 90 min­utes as Sparta Praha col­lected max­i­mum points in a 2-0 away win against Bo­hemi­ans 1905.

Bantu Rovers’ ju­nior prod­uct Marvelous Nakamba played his sec­ond full game for Vitesse in the Dutch Ere­di­visie League this sea­son de­spite los­ing 1-2 at home to Ado Den Haag. Vitesse had opened their sea­son with a 4-1 away victory against Willem 11, but some­how found the go­ing tough in front of their sup­port­ers.

In Swe­den, Mathew Rusike was yellow carded in the 22nd minute as his side Hels­ing­borg emerged 1-2 losers to AIK.

Rusike’s fel­low coun­try­man in Swe­den, for­mer Harare City winger Tino­tenda Kadewere was a sec­ond half sub­sti­tute for his Djur­gar­den side, which drew 2-2 at home to Eifs­borg.
