BULAWAYO, Saturday, November 11, 1991 — The Ndlovu brothers, Peter and Adam, sent Zimbabwe through to the next round of the 1992 Olympic games when they led the national under 23 soccer team to this memorable win over Tunisia in yesterday’s return qualifying match at Barbourfields Stadium.
Going into the match trailing 1-3 from the first leg that was played in Tunisia last month, Zimbabwe outplayed the visitors in all departments. Adam opened the scoring in the 30th minute after the young brother Peter set him up to place a header past the Tunisian goalkeeper Ben Meriem.
The goal unsettled the Tunisians whose approach to the game was more on the defensive than than attacking. The Tunisians paid dearly for their approach when Peter opened his double in the 60th minute. He worked his way past four defenders before his scorcher from inside the penalty box beat the Tunisian goalkeeper hands down.
Ten minutes later, Tunisia’s Fouzzi Roussi sent a shiver up the Zimbabwe bench when he pulled one back from an Adel Sellim pass. However, the Zimbabweans never panicked as they kept their cool and Agent Sawu headed home a high ball from Peter in the 81th minute.
The goal pushed the match into extra time where the marauding Zimbabweans kept the visitors on the run and piled pressure after pressure. The Zimbabweans, however, lost their composure following the substitution of Benjamin Konjera who had played his heart out to overshadow Tunisia’s Ayadi Habrouni. Peter put Zimbabwe four up in the 109th minute.
Six minutes later Adam put paid Tunisia’s hopes of advancing to the next round when he beat three defenders and rounded off the goalkeeper before placing the ball into an empty net to send the capacity crowd into song and dance.
