Nhamoinesu showed Zimbabwean claws
EDITOR — Costa Nhamoinesu’s solitary goal which sunk the English champions Southampton shall serve as a message to all our so-called tough opponents which we are going to face at the Africa Cup of Nations.
Zimbabwe has players appearing in the highest footballing competitions on the planet and scoring, this means that despite all the talk we will be at par with all the teams we will play with.
Khama Billiat also stands a very strong chance to be named the Best African based player of the year by CAF.
Other players who have won this accolade include Egyptian attacker Mohammed Aboutrika who went on to be an instrumental element in Egypt’s reign in African soccer around the mid-2000s.
The South African Sports Minister Fikile Mbalula heaped praise on our captain Willard Katsande who, after replacing midfield pillars like Reneilwe Letsholonyane, went on to be a household name at the Naturena.
Also, the beautiful headache that Pasuwa has in terms of selecting the striking team is choosing about five attackers from an array of players who have been performing well for their teams.
So, those who underrate our country should do so at their own peril because we are worthy contenders for the title. We can pull a suprise and win it against all odds. Sasha Zambuko
