WARRIORS forward David Moyo says the main goal in tonight’s game against South Africa is to find the right groove and play to win.

Zimbabwe play their Limpopo neighbours in a 2022 World Cup qualifier at FNB in South Africa. Kick Off is 9pm.

And speaking ahead of the encounter, Moyo said they are going into the match looking for a win.

“I am delighted to be here, really excited to the boys I have not seen before and see some same old faces like Khama (Billiat) and Marv (Nakamba).

“It’s a massive game because you want to win every game that you go it. For us the main thing is to find the groove and get to know each other and play the best football we can as group. That’s our aim, be the best we can be and hopefully win the game,” said Moyo

The Hamilton Academical striker also spoke on pressure of the possibility of being entrusted with the responsibility to lead the team upfront.

The Scotland-based forward, Knox Mutizwa and rookie Bill Antonio are the only strikers in Norman Mapeza’s camp.

Captain Knowledge Musona is out due to injury together with Tino Kadewere and Prince Dube, who did not receive callups. “I just play football and try to score many goals as I can, I don’t really look at it as pressure. I just look it as doing something I love to do, so I keep doing it,” added Moyo.

He believes he now has an understanding with some of his teammates and hopes it will bear fruits in tonight’s match.

Mapeza’s men will be playing for pride since they are out of contention while their opponents and Ghana fight to win Group G.

Ghana play Ethiopia this afternoon. Zimbabwe host Ethiopia in their last match of the group stage on Sunday while Bafana Bafana are traveling to Ghana.

“I feel like I know the boys a bit better and we understand each other, hopefully that can help us do the right thing and go into the right directions,” he said.

Moyo also hailed new coach Norman Mapeza. “He wants to be very professional, he pays attention to detail, so credit to him for him a man of detail.”
