Young War­riors out to main­tain fine run

hope that the other group fix­ture be­tween An­gola and Botswana on Thurs­day pro­duces a favourable out­come for our cause,” said Young War­riors’ coach, Bekithemba Ndlovu.

With An­gola and Le­sotho play­ing to a 1-1 draw in the other Group C en­counter, the Young War­riors lead the group by two points and need to avoid de­feat to re­main in con­tention for a semi-fi­nal berth, as only the top sides from the three pools and best run­ner-up from Group A and C will sail through.

Ndlovu said the mid­field was cru­cial in their first game, es­pe­cially when on the of­fen­sive. He is likely to de­ploy the same line-up that did duty on Mon­day in the hope of sub­du­ing the 2017 los­ing fi­nal­ists. Le­sotho were beaten 1-2 by South Africa in last year’s fi­nal.

Zim­babwe wrap up their group games with a tie against An­gola on De­cem­ber 9, while Le­sotho take on Botswana. Both games will be played at Nkana Sta­dium.

Win­ners of the group will clash with Group A win­ners. Group A has hosts Zam­bia, Mozam­bique, Malawi and guest na­tion DR Congo.
