Inline Academy coach Shadreck Mlauzi has expressed concern over the cancellation of their National Women’s Football Super League match against Chipembere.
Inline Academy were set to travel to Gweru to face Chipembere today but Mlauzi said the game has been cancelled because some of their players are with the Mighty Warriors in Germany for the two-week training camp.
“We were supposed to play Chipembere but we are no longer playing. The team was starting to have rhythm and now it is being disturbed. There is likelihood we might break for the Youth Games and then the Mighty Warriors are going to Mozambique for the All-Africa Games so they are going to be breaks as well,” he said.
Mighty Warriors striker Rudo Neshamba, Nobuhle Majika and Samukelisiwe Zulu are part of the women’s national team that is in Germany.
“Clubs had raised concerns over inactivity saying we need to continue with the league as they are many assignments for the national team coming up. We do not have to stop the running of the league,” he said.
Women football administrator Alice Mwale said the league has been postponed because of the tournament that is being organised by Inline Academy on August 5-7 and not because of Mighty Warriors’ national assignment.
