Knowledge Musona: We can still do it.
Zimbabwe plays DRC tonight, 30 June 2019 at 30 June Stadium, a day which also happens to be Independence Day for the DRC. Speaking to Zimbabwean media after their Friday evening training session at the El sekka-el hadid SC Stadium.
We beat them before (in the qualifiers) but this is a different environment altogether, it’s a tournament but we are going to do our best. If we play like we did in our last game where we created chances but now we need to convert them I think we can get maximum points. The Smiling Assasin missed some golden opportunities in the game against Uganda. He was, however, instrumental in the buildup towards Khama Billiat’s stunning goal.
Warriors coach, Sunday Chidzambwa, also spoke at the same presser and said that the match against DRC was a tough one for both teams since they faced each other in the qualifiers stages.
Nottingham Forest defender, Tendayi Darikwa, called for more goals so as to cancel all possibilities of drawing of lots in the event Uganda lose by a one nil margin to Egypt. He said that they can win against DRC if they replicate their play against Uganda. He added that they only needed to spice it with goals. He said they intend to fight throughout the match for maximum points.
“We are facing a very difficult game, both teams haven’t won a game. We were also in the same group in the qualifiers for this tournament and I think that on its own makes it very difficult, however, we are going to play a game of football for the entire 90 minutes and do our best and see what happens after those 90 minutes,” said Chidzambwa.
Hard working defender Tendayi Darikwa, who has established himself well at the right back position where he is also brilliant when overlapping, called for more goals that will cancel all possibilities of drawing of lots in the event Uganda lose by a one nil margin to the hosts nation Egypt at Cairo International Stadium.
He said there was need to convert the chances that come their way instead of repeating the same mistakes they did against Uganda where they created a glut of goal scoring opportunities but could only manage a 1-0 win.
“I think you might have seen the chances we created against Uganda but we just scored one goal, that’s the most disappointing thing but I think the main issue now is looking forward to the game against DRC.
I am sure if we keep the same level of performance we showed against Uganda I am sure we can score more goals and get the three points,” said the England-based defender where he plays for Nottingham Forest. He said morale in camp was high and everyone was looking forward to the DRC game.
“Everyone is fine in camp, the spirit is great. Look, we are here to play football and I am not going to comment on internal matters regarding Zifa and things like that. My job is just to play football and I am here to do that, I am sure we will be ready for DRC,” said Darikwa.
Since 2000, Zimbabwe and DRC have met five times with the Warriors registering two wins while DRC won once in the Afcon qualifiers on June 17 where they beat Zimbabwe 2-1. The other two matches ended in one all stalemates.
