Wilson Mutekede Remains Upbeat About Warriors' Future Despite Another Loss To Namibia

Zimbabwe-Warriors caretaker coach, Wilson Mutekede remains upbeat about the future of the team, despite watching Warriors suffer their second defeat in a row to Namibia on Saturday.

Speaking to after a disappointing 3-1 loss to Namibia's Brave Warriors in a hugely attended Dr. Hage Geingob Cup competition at Sam Nujoma Stadium in Namibia, Mutekede said Zimbabwe-Warriors are on the right track.

" We are definitely on the right path and we are moving forward," said Mutekede

"If we then work on what we have discovered and learnt from the two fixtures, we will achieve success."

"Sometimes we overlook points to rectify if we only  get excellent results...this has offered us an opportunity to critically analyse the team." said the Warriors caretaker coach.

Namibia took Zimbabwe-Warriors by surprise - in a kind of ambush style to score three goals in the first half of the match to claim another victory over the Warriors. Zimbabwe got their consolation through Tendai Ndoro's penalty in the 37th minute.

On the assessment of the Brit-Brigade, who also featured in the 3-1 defeat to Namibia on Saturday (Tendayi Darikwa and Kundai Benyu started whilst Bonne and Muskwe were introduced in the second half ), Mutekede beleive the youngsters have a future in the team.

"They are all quality players with a brighter future in the team," Mutekede said.

"They are looking forward to future calls, but three are ready to really compete while Muskwe is still a good talent to be natured."

Zimbabwe-Warriors will resume their Africa Cup of Nations 2019 qualifying campaign on 19 March against Congo-Brazzaville.
