SLIZ ral­lies War­riors

The Herald (Zimbabwe) - - Sport - Te­dious Manyepo Sports Re­porter

THE Sport Lead­ers In­sti­tute of Zim­babwe have chal­lenged the War­riors to for­get their un­der­dog tag if they are to get a re­sult against Al­ge­ria in Franceville, Gabon, to­mor­row.

SLIZ pres­i­dent, Rus­sel Maradza Mhiribidi, said the War­riors stand a bet­ter chance of pro­gress­ing to the last eight if they dump their un­der­dog tag.

“The Zim­babwe War­riors should change their mind­set and start to see things the way they should be seen. We have been to the AFCON twice be­fore and I be­lieve we have learnt enough lessons. There is no way we can al­ways go to such tour­na­ments to learn. The na­tional team is made up of se­nior play­ers, most of whom are in the twi­light of their ca­reers. They must just de­liver the goods.

“The game against Al­ge­ria is very cru­cial and we have to win that one at all costs to ease the pres­sure. His­tory favours us but we must be very cau­tious not to dwell much into the past. I be­lieve the cur­rent crop of War­riors is the best ever,” he said.
