'Young Warriors were clinical'

HARARE - Swaziland national football team coach Harries Bulunga was left to swallow a bitter pill on Wednesday night after watching his side outclassed by a sleek passing Zimbabwe Under-23 squad.

Speaking shortly after his charges failed to match the Young Warriors in an international friendly played under floodlights at the Somhlolo National Stadium, Bulunga conceded Zimbabwe were the better team.

“We failed to cover the right flank and it boils down to our organisation at the back. In fact, our opponents punished us for our own mistakes,” Balunga said.

“We conceded goals we should not have. The difference was that our opponents today were clinical, while we were not. We were able to create some decent chances but unfortunately we could not take them.”

Zimbabwe were on course following two quick second half goals in a space of two minutes thrust them in front and ensured they stayed ahead.

CAPS United midfielder Charles Mukanhaire, who came in for Brian Muzondiwa, opened Zimbabwe’s account in the 55th minute before FC Platinum striker Wisdom Mutasa wrapped up the result in the 57th minute in front of an estimated crowd of 50 people.

Zimbabwe were using the friendly to prepare for the qualifiers of the 2015 DR Congo under-23 African Championships in April 2015 in which they play Swaziland’s Under-23 team first.
