Zenzo Moyo rallies Warriors strikers


Former Warriors striker Zenzo Moyo has backed the team’s current forward line to inspire them to victory when they clash with Malawi in a Group L 2017 Africa Cup of Nations qualifier to be played at the National Sports Stadium on Sunday.



Moyo singled out Mamelodi Sundowns attacker Khama Billiat and Orlando Pirates’ Tendai Ndoro as the form players who he wants to see transform club form to international football.

“We are going to beat Malawi, I am very positive about that. If you look, Khama (Billiat) and (Tendai) Ndoro have been playing very well for their clubs in South Africa and all they have to do is to transform that form to the Warriors,” Moyo said.

The former Zimbabwe international, who plied his trade in Cyprus and for Highlanders locally, believes coach Kalisto Pasuwa has a squad hungry for success.

“None of these players have played against the big African countries, the likes of Senegal and Ivory Coast. That alone should spur them to be hungry to win against Malawi and going forward to qualify for next year’s finals,” Moyo said. Pasuwa also has in camp Belgium-based Knowledge Musona, South Africa-based Maritzburg’s Evans Rusike and Mamelodi Sundowns’ Cuthbert Malajila.

From the midfield Pasuwa will bank on captain Willard Katsande and Netherlands-based Marvin Nakamba, who both play at the base of the midfield.

Kuda Mahachi was full of life in the team’s last two matches against Swaziland and the friendly match against Uganda on Tuesday.

The Warriors have been good in defence so far concedeing just three goals and Czech Republic-based Costa Nhamoinesu will be tasked with marshalling the back four that might also contain Dynamos’ Elisha Muroiwa.

The Warriors need nothing short of victory to put themselves in a good position to forge ahead to the finals well before their encounter against Guinea in September.
