PM rallies behind Warriors

HARARE - Prime Minister Morgan Tsvangirai has become the latest high-profile figure to rally behind the Zimbabwe football side in its quest to qualify for next year’s African Nations Cup finals in South Africa.

Tsvangirai urged the Warriors to make the country proud when they face Angola in a decisive qualifier in Luanda tomorrow, needing to protect a 3-1 first leg lead to seal passage to their third ever Afcon finals.

“On Sunday, our national soccer team, the Warriors, will be playing a crucial match in Luanda, Angola, and I urge all Zimbabweans to rally behind the team,” said Tsvangirai in a statement yesterday.

“Our thoughts and prayers are with these patriotic men, from the technical team to the players and fans who will make it to Luanda. Our 3-1 lead from the first leg at Rufaro Stadium puts us in a good position to qualify for the Nations Cup in South Africa.

“My family and I will be closely following this match and I am certain that all Zimbabweans will rally behind the Warriors as they carry high our national flag. I am confident that come Sunday we will all be celebrating a good result from Angola.” - Sports Writer
