Giwa seeks Mighty Warriors win

HARARE - Zimbabwe women football team stand-in coach Langton Giwa has rallied the Mighty Warriors to make full use of their friendly against South Africa this afternoon as they seek to start their Zone Six games preparations on a positive note.

Giwa, who is the Under -20 coach, was chosen to lead the Mighty Warriors in this encounter to enable him to assemble a strong squad to participate in this year’s  Zone six games to be held in Bulawayo at the end of this year.

“This is an important game for us since we are preparing for Zone Six games, we need to have a strong squad. By the time we get to December, we must be ready,” Giwa told the Daily News yesterday.

“The girls are hungry for success but I think the game will be very tough.

“Morale among the girls is high and we are looking forward to a great game.”

About seven senior players, including Captain Felistas Muzongondi and Rudo Neshamba, have also been drafted into the 25-member squad that started camp on Monday.

“I think those seven senior players will give the much-needed experience against South Africa,” Giwa said.

“The senior and the juniors are blending well and as a coach I am happy, the girls are showing good commitment.

“We are going to give them the respect they deserve, however, we are confident that we are going to win the game.”

South Africa will use the match to prepare for the African Women Championship finals to be heldin Namibia later this year.
