Warriors’ results in Asia falsified?


RESULTS of some of the matches played by the Warriors in the Merdeka Cup in Malaysia in 2007 and VFF Cup in Vietnam are now in question.

According to the judge Justice Ahmed Ebrahim report, Zimbabwe is reported to have lost 3-1 to Singapore on August 21 in the Merdeka Cup when, Wikipedia reports the actual result was 4-2.

The other matches played there are correct — Zimbabwe beat Indonesia and Bangladesh 2-1 and then lost to Myanmar 3-1.

In the VFF Cup in Vietnam that ran from November 1-5 2007, Zimbabwe reportedly lost 3-2 to Finland while during interviews some of the players say the score was 1-1 from the opening match. In the second match on November 3, Zimbabwe lost 2-0, yet others put it at a 2-1 loss for the Warriors.

In the third match, played two days later, the Warriors drew 1-1 with Uzbekistan, but the result is being disputed and recorded at a 2-0 loss for the Warriors. So what were the real results?
