Morale boost for Mighty Warriors

HARARE - The Mighty Warriors will go into this weekend’s 2016 Rio Olympic Games second round qualifier away to Zambia with their spirits high after receiving financial assistance from Walter Magaya.

The Prophetic Healing and Deliverance (PHD) leader agreed to finance the team’s travelling expenses and upkeep while in Lusaka.

The match takes place at the Nkoloma Stadium on Sunday and the Mighty Warriors are scheduled to travel today.

Rosemary Mugadza’s ladies trooped into camp this week to begin preparations for the match, with 23 players reporting for duty.

“My word of advice to you is that, you must unite because with divisions you are not going anywhere as you know I am not a politician but I love my nation,” Magaya said on Wednesday evening.

“I want to assist whoever is playing football in order to achieve their goals. I want to make sure that their talents are discovered.

“I believe if we sponsor our sport well, it will help in the growth of our economy, look what is happening to Didier Drobga and Yaya Toure; they are currently building hospitals for their people.

“Imagine if it was happening with three or four players from Zimbabwe, building hospitals in our country, it will help us economically.

“I am a Zimbabwe; I love my country, so I want to raise my country’s flag high. I want to sit down with the football authorities and have a long plan on what to do to solve their problems.”

If the Mighty Warriors progress to the next stage, they will face the winner between the Ivory Coast and Tunisia.
