Mighty War­riors story needs fur­ther prob­ing

Chronicle (Zimbabwe) - - National News -

EDI­TOR — Af­ter Tues­day’s shock­ing ref­er­ee­ing de­ci­sion against the Mighty War­riors I am now con­vinced that there is a con­spir­acy against Zim­babwe in the sport­ing fra­ter­nity.

There is no jus­ti­fi­ca­tion as to why our goal, scored by Felis­tas Mu­zon­gondi, was dis­al­lowed, off­side surely can­not be a rea­son as there were Egyp­tian de­fend­ers cov­er­ing the line.

Nei­ther can we at­tribute the in­jus­tice to in­fringe­ment as the goal scorer made a long run from deep within the field.

It must have shocked some that the team they thought would be the whip­ping girls of the group is go­ing pound for pound with the so-called con­ti­nen­tal giants.

Of course, de­mor­al­is­ing them through dis­al­low­ing a clear goal was the only way out for the Egyp­tians.

As usual, the ref­eree will apol­o­gise but that will not aide our pro­gres­sion in any way, it also will not re­deem our lost points.

It seems there is a de­lib­er­ate plot to oust some coun­tries from tour­na­ments through du­bi­ous de­ci­sions which are only pun­ished by hear­ings and sus­pen­sions and noth­ing is done to com­pen­sate the ag­grieved team.If African foot­ball is to have any sense, this level of cheat­ing needs to be elim­i­nated. Dadi­rai Marimbe.
