Gorowa snubs press after Warriors bow out

HARARE - A visibly Zimbabwe national football team coach Ian Gorowa refused to speak to the press following the Warriors two-all draw with Tanzania yesterday which eliminated them out of the African Nations Cup qualifiers at the first hurdle.

“What can I say, we failed to convert our chances thus it,” Gorowa said before fleeing to the dressing rooms.

Zifa communication manager Xlolisani Gwesela said Gorowa told him that he was no ready to speak to the press.

However, Warriors midfielder Willard Katsande bemoaned missed chances.

“We failed to utilise our chances but as for me I will continue to represent my country,” Katsande said.

“When you are a professional footballer you are always under pressure, we were trying to make our supporters happy but it happens in football, we failed to utilise our chances,” added Katsande.

Tanzania assistant coach Salum Mayanga praised his team.

“Our plan was to defend because we were playing away from home. Zimbabwe were always going to attack us from the first whistle and we had to slow them down,” he said.

"I think we won this tie in Tanzania but Zimbabwe is a good side and they played very well.”

If a player gets an opportunity to score in the D Arch and baloons it over the bar what more do you expect the coach to do,the players are at faulty for failing to fight like gallant warriors.The two goals scored by Tanzania could have been avoided had the players been more focused,after vadyisa nyika wotonzwa rimwe richiti "i will continue to represent my country",we have had enough of this nonsense from these useless bunch of players who are only prepared to die for their adopted clubs at the expense of thier motherland.Pagels naMutasa vakanga vazviona ndosaka vakanga vafunga zvekutanga zvitsva pane ava .

How can Gorowa achieve positive results , when our national soccer players are being paid peanuts by zifa ???? ZIFA needs to put its house in order because it is being run like a circus . Zimbabwean soccer will never achieve anything as long as we have incompetent administrators .
