Injured trio travel to Malawi

HARARE - Zimbabwe internationals Kuda Mahachi, Milton Ncube and Peter Moyo – who were involved in a road accident at the weekend – travelled to Blantyre with the Warriors yesterday for tomorrow’s friendly international with Malawi.

The three Highlanders players were part of the delegation that left Harare around 3am yesterday by road.

The trio sustained minor injuries when a car driven by Ncube lost control and overturned just outside Kadoma as they were coming from Bulawayo to join the national team on Sunday.

“Highlanders players who were involved in an accident were also part of the squad. They were treated and discharged. Their condition is stable but I am not sure if they will be fielded,” Zifa communications officer Xolisani Gwesela said yesterday.

Warriors team manager Sharrif Mussa and his deputy Patrick Mutesva did not travel due to pressing business commitments. Goalkeepers’ coach Richard Tswatswa will manage the team on interim basis.

Dynamos coach Calisto Pasuwa, who is Warriors boss Ian Gorowa’s assistant, was excused from the friendly together with his DeMbare players as the Harare giants are preparing for their return match of the African Champions League against AS Vita this weekend.

Gorowa and foreign based players were expected to fly directly from their bases and join their teammates in Blantyre.

Czech Republic-based defender Costa Nhamoinesu is also expected to feature for Zimbabwe for the first time in almost eight years. 

Gorowa is hoping to use the Malawi match to fine-tune combinations for the 2015 African Nations Cup qualifiers, scheduled to start later this year.
