Lessons from the War­riors, Barcelona Leg­ends game

The Herald (Zimbabwe) - - Insight -

ED­I­TOR — The Zim­babwe Foot­ball As­so­ci­a­tion showed that they have the abil­ity to or­gan­ise big matches af­ter they suc­cess­fully or­gan­ised a match be­tween the War­riors and the Barcelona Leg­ends.

This match show­cased some good lessons for the cur­rent crop of play­ers. I am sure they have no­ticed that there was no kick and run kind of foot­ball from both sides. The War­riors Leg­ends proved their tal­ent. This game also showed that our soc­cer leg­ends are still rel­e­vant to the game. Re­main­ing fit was ev­i­dent on Novem­ber 12.

I have watched a num­ber of leg­ends play games. Most of them are still fit. In­deed, the young­sters can learn a lot, but while cel­e­brat­ing this car­ni­val we must not for­get that to cre­ate fu­ture leg­ends, the ju­nior struc­tures should be taken se­ri­ously.

How­ever, my con­cern is over the is­sue of en­gag­ing a good coach for the War­riors leg­ends to pre­pare for fu­ture matches. It is im­por­tant for a coach to get to know his play­ers bet­ter.

I also want to thank Zifa for invit­ing Prophet Wal­ter Ma­gaya to be a guest player. This also showed that be­ing a man of God does not stop one from in­ter­act­ing with oth­ers even through par­tic­i­pat­ing in sport­ing ac­tiv­i­ties.

We hope that other prophets and pas­tors will be­gin to show up at such ac­tiv­i­ties help­ing in dif­fer­ent ways either by par­tic­i­pat­ing or any other means.

Well done ZIFA!
