Nhamoinesu showed Zim­bab­wean claws

Chronicle (Zimbabwe) - - National News -

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
