Report by Fortune Mbele

DYNAMOS are through to the finals of the Mbada Diamonds Cup after thoroughly beating Caps United in the semi-final match played at Barbourfields Stadium yesterday.

The Harare football giants will meet Monomotapa in the finals in two weeks time.

Monoz qualified for the finals after beating FC Platinum 1-0 in the other semi-final played at Sakubva Stadium on Saturday.

Denver Mukamba, Simba Sithole and Rodreck Mutuma were on target as the Glamour Boys asserted their dominance over their city rivals whom they had already beaten twice this year before yesterday’s result.

Dynamos beat Caps United 1-0 and 3-0 respectively in the league encounters.

Caps United played the last quarter of the match with 10 men after left-back Arnold Chivheya was shown a red card by referee Hardly Ndazi for a second bookable offence.

Save for the three goals, yesterday’s match did not live up to expectations in terms of entertainment value.

But the Dynamos supporters would care less as their team marched to the finals where they will defend the title they won last year.

Their celebrations at the final whistle said it all.

DeMbare assistant coach Tonderai Ndiraya was ecstatic over the victory and believed his team would go all the way to win the coveted cup.

“From the start, we showed that we wanted to win. We really pushed Caps United to the fence and we got away with a comfortable win,” Ndiraya said.

“In our games against Caps United, we don’t need to motivate the guys. It’s just psychological and our boys are always confident. Monomotapa are a good side, but we showed character in our last game against them when we came back from behind.

“I would like to promise our fans that we will do well and give Monomotapa a good run for their money.”

It was a second defeat in a row for coach Mkhuphali Masuku who took over from Taurai Mangwiro.

The former Highlanders coach disappeared into the dressing room at the final whistle, leaving goalkeepers’ coach Brenna Msiska to face the media.

“I am disappointed, but it’s the name of the game. You cannot win when you have players who cannot shoot at goal,” Msiska said.

Mukamba scored a gem of a goal in the 39th minute when he took into his stride a pass from Mutuma to rifle home a scorcher from just outside the penalty box.

The build-up to the goal had seen Murape Murape’s effort blocked by the Caps United defence.

On-fire striker Sithole then punished his former paymasters when he connected an Ocean Mushure cross to volley past Caps United shot-stopper Itai Chiwara as Dynamos took control.

It was Sithole’s fourth goal on the trot.

Mutuma then sealed the emphatic win two minutes from time when the lanky striker tapped in a cross from substitute Farai Mupasiri who had left Caps United left-back Asani Nhongo.

Dynamos’ gangly goalkeeper George Chigova was barely tested.
His colleagues pounded heavily on Caps United in the dying minutes of the match and Chiwara was kept a busy man.

Tawanda Muparati was voted man-of-the-match and walked away $500 richer.

Dynamos: G Chigova, T Mamvura, O Mushure, G Bello, P Jaure, T Magorimbo, R Mutuma, T Muparati, S Sithole (F Mupasiri, 86mins), D Mukamba (M Vengesai 83mins) M Murape (C Sekete 60mins)
Caps United: I Chiwara, T Khumbuyani, A Nhongo, A Chiveya (red card 77th minute), B Zabula, T Samanja, H Zvirekwi, L Fiyado, D Rediyoni (E Chafungamoyo 60mins), R Kutsanzira, S Kawondera (N Mpala 46mins)


  1. Inonzi Chazunguza.Hokoyo hachimakiki!

    1. maka winner ne back door all u needed was confusion kucap united. muno tanga kutaura zveASIAGATE kare kose mainge makanyarara shame to you ZIFA

      1. point of correction…caps is no longer that team yaikwatisa all this talk of back door is hogwash. kana wakaona bhora u will be satisfied that an organised team won

      2. chiefjusticechaiye

        sam uri boorangoma risingazivi bhora. pple like you shld not be accorded the opportunity to post rubbish & mediocre comments. wakafanana na baba vako twine phiri

      3. what back door are you talking about. sometimes u jus got to accept defeat

      4. You are dreaming, where does asiagate come in? Bvumai kana makazoriwa

      5. Mr Sam dont be too emotional to the extent that you ignore clear facts. Those who have been following the Asiagate know verywell that the first local team to be affected was Dynamos who had Guthrie Zhokinyu banned for life on the eve of the Quarter Final match against Gunners. Dynamos went on to beat Gunners convincingly. By the way, Caps Utd hired Mangwiro fully aware that he was one of the suspects in the Asiagate Scandal so they had to expect it. sorry that Twine Phiri (as a member of ZIFA Board) was excited that Zhokinyu was banned hoping that Gunners were going to win. Tough luck the chickens are coming home to roost. Munopembedza n’anga neino bata amai.Twine rakazvirova rikazhamba.

    2. Aiwa inonzi Chazezesa mutunhu unemago

  2. zora butter zoraaaaaaaa!!!!

  3. Zechias Matsotse

    Well done guys, thankyou for the good match that you displayed yesterday.

  4. kudakwashe marange

    Kuti dembare ndokuti bhora

  5. Chinomakwa Nani Hachimakike,manje chicha makwa naJaure,Bello,Mamvura,Mushure alongside Magorimbo.MaDeMbare muriko hereeeeeee,tinozora chete butter kwete Romi.

  6. A good score line from a youthful, purposeful and well focussed team. Keep it up. DeMbare haina ngozi they say. Chazunguza chaenda ku Mbada Cup Final. DeMbare has produced the best coaches so far (Taurai Mangwiro:- CAPS Utd, Moses Chunga:- Gunners, Luke Masomere:- Shabanie Mine and Biggie Zuze:- Monoz) and they have been put to test each time they faced their former team.


    “Save for the three goals,yesterday’s match did not live up to expectations in terms of entertainment value”,what nonsense Mr Reporter.This is the problem with reporters who also happen to be supporters.Of all the papers I’ve read this morning(3 in number) this is the first one to say yesterday’s match had no entertainment value.You are entitled to your own opinion Mr Mbele,but its advisable not to be sentimental when reporting,if your favourite team was clobbered that doesn’t take away entertainment value from the match.DeMbare were simply unstoppable yesterday and banged in three goals for good measure,which other entertainment value were you looking for?

    1. Well said my friend. The problem we have with these journalists is that they think their work gives them the monopoly to report to others whatever lies and rubbish. Thanks to the net , we can also report more professionally and truthfully than them. Certainly the match lived up to its expectations. We were entertained. Ava vana Mbele vanga vasiko kuBF, vaiteerera commentary paradio. Kana iwe Mbele wakanyepera vekubasa kwako kuti urikuenda kuBF uchida ma-allowances iwe usina kuenda buda pachena

    2. tru dat mdara. The reporter was left disappointed probably because his team lost or was eliminated in the early stages of the tournament. I also hate these kind of reporters who have no knowledge of soccer and would only want to seek negativity where it is not. This reporter is a slut

  8. Its always beautiful to beat Fekefeke, nothing more sweeter .

  9. NdiDhewa Masvingo neCarpet

    vakarakasha seri neseri sechitinha,idyai henyu makavichi amanga matenga zuro from us futi madembare takaita mari wena zuro,kana musina mafuta neupfu musanyare pliz will assit you takmirira kuzopa Monoz size yakanaka

  10. hapana apo zifa u aa just foolish maitaura nezve asia gate muchida kuti dembare manje mawacha

    1. Taura hako. Dembare tisu mbada dzacho. Mbada DeMbare Cup hapana kwainoenda ingogara kedu.

    2. Once upon a time their was a team called CAPS united. in the year 2011 they had a slow start to the season. however a coach called Lloyd Chitembwe arrived and turned around the team’s fortunes. then Farai Jere decided to perform miracles. For reasons best Known to him and Twine Phiri they hired a clown called Shon Corner to be Lloyd’s boss. The rest, as they say is history……

      1. General Pancho Villa

        …and they were United to be defeated.

    3. Where is Mangwiro if saying hapanaAsiagate issue,handiti you wanted to weaken our team.Anyhow makatirifva but come net season,hapana pamunotirova,CAPS UNITED for life

      1. Chitakochangonya Matope

        nhai iwe kudzi DeMbare ndiyo yakaunza Asiagate?? Ko kungobvumawo kuti CAPS ndiyo ine huwori hwose.

      2. Munochemera Mangwiro nhasi sei? Twine was part of the ZIFA Board that banned Zhokinyu for life on the eve of the Quarter Final match against Gunners. If the ZIFA Board were correct in banning Zhokinyu why then are they becoming wrong for banning Mangwiro?

    4. tavakutodanwa kunzi De-Mbada mazuva ano!!ko nhai mambonzweiko varume??hanzi muchato wanezuro pakati pemasupporter eBossolohwa nemasupporter aMainini Tobaiwa Feke feke,wakapera nezuro wakare imo mubed room re BF,hanzi mutambo wakazosara wopera zvorovana nekubayana nema’fork & knives apo vaZORI vanoZORA vakange vopedzisa kuZORA!!!haa ini zvangu ini,De-Mbare yacho yatopinda muAUTO!!-Say,Sir Marcus
