Dynamos,Shabanie draw

DYNAMOS players and officials had to be escorted by police out of Rufaro Stadium yesterday as a section of the team’s supporters threatened to turn violent on them after the Harare giants threw away a three-goal lead to draw against a fighting Shabanie Mine.


Shabanie Mine.. .(0)3
Irate fans formed a barricade at the main entrance into the stadium, calling for the technical team, the club executive and a few players including substitute Valentine Ndaba, to leave the club, following the “embarrassing” result.

Striker Christian Ntouba, who did not feature in the match in protest over unpaid fees by the club, was showered with a few notes and coins in the melee, with the supporters showing a clear support for the embattled Cameroonian.

The Dynamos team bus had to be escorted out of the stadium by the police, and thankfully, the tense situation, did not turn violent.

The supporters were angry at the way their team had crumbled like a deck of cards in the last 22 minutes of the match, having built what appeared like an unassailable lead.

Exciting young winger Valentine Kadonzvo put the Harare giants in front on the half hour mark, after he was picked unmarked inside the box by a Blessing Moyo cross.

Kudzanai Dhemere, another promising Dynamos youngster, doubled the advantage after 54 minutes, sweeping the ball into the nets from a quality square pass by Quality Kangadze.

The later appeared to have wrapped up the match when he blasted the ball into the top right corner from a rebound, after his initial shot had been blocked by goalkeeper Petros Moyo. The home side had created the better chances, before and after scoring their three goals.
Shabanie Mine, though, had other ideas.

Former Dynamos midfielder, Carlos Rusere hit the post for Shabaniebefore the Zvishavane side pulled one back through double scorer, David Temwanjira.

Dynamos, who were yesterday under assistant coach, Biggie Zuze as coach, Lloyd Mutasa was away with the national team in Zambia, had struggled to deal with set pieces and long balls into their box.

The manner in which they conceded a first goal was not surprising. A corner kick was floated into the box, and with the players in blue shirts all ball watching and Temwanjira bundled the ball home.

Goalkeeper, Blessing Mwandimutsira could have done better to cut the cross.

Substitute Richard Kawondera, a Dynamos reject, gave Shabanie Mine even more hope when he fired past Mwandimutsira on 80 minutes after the Dynamos defence had again failed to deal with a second ball following a free-kick.

A minute later, the Takesure Chiragwi-coached side completed a thrilling comeback, when Temwanjira showed great composure to place the ball into the nets after getting to an end of a flick-on from a long ball from deep.

They could have nicked all the three points right at the death, Joe Nyabinde failing to beat Mwandimutsira from a one on one situation.
Zuze said he will take the blame for his side’s shock capitulation, with his second half substitutions, particularly the introduction of the ineffective Ndaba, causing displeasure among supporters.

Zuze was satisfied with the team’s attackers, who missed Ntouba and captain Ocean Mushure, and lamented the defenders for letting in the goals.

He reckoned it was a better performance overall, from the way they played in their season opener where they lost to Chicken Inn.

But a one point return from a possible six, is a big worry for the former Monomotapa coach.

Chiragwi congratulated his boys for an ‘unbelievable’ fighting spirit to earn a point from the jaws of defeat, a result that would take his side’s points tally to four in two matches.


Dynamos: B Mwandimutsira, B Moyo, R Matova, J Tigere, M Machazane, J Marufu, K Dhemere (O Mwerahari, 84′), C Kapupurika, R Manuvire, V Kadonzvo (V Ndaba, 60′), Q Kangadze (K Kumwala, 83′)

  1. this mutasa crap will definitely disappoint us again this season it may be a good idea to resort to beating the hell out of him everytime his charges put up a bad show to hasten his firing from the beloved club of 7mln ardent supporters

    1. While i respect your view, you still need to know that its not Mutasa but the Administrators who are robbing DeMbare the limelight. No balls at the team, no money for the senior players and so who do you expect. its better they drew. The was supposed to be beaten. I watched the match.

      1. shld resign if the conditions are not good

      2. Mufundisi matauro zvokwadi ,Admin yedu haadi Mutasa …..i recall last time they dragged their feet in signing Malajila only to sign him when a new coach came in…this time they dragging their feet in signing Joel ….they just want the team to lose and blame it on Lloyd ….if i was Lloyd i will quit if they dont sign the Cameroonian by next game

    2. So you are advocating for violence ?

      1. yes sir if results do not come up until he gets fired football is about results results and results

  2. Bvaruuuuuuuuuuu Mhai weeeeeeeee. Well done Shabanie for teaching dhinyonyo a lesson.

  3. The journalist who scribbled the article is a staunch dynamos fan. Look at the length of the article. Asvotwa munhu uyu kkkkkkkkkkkkk. Mati madiii muchama……….

    1. nutty dreadlock


  4. Bvaruuuuuuuuuuuuu
    Mhai weeeeeeeeeeee!!!

  5. Mutasa must be fired

    1. You don’t know what you are talking about. Instead of you guys trying to beat up players who are hungry why not make sure benard marriot and Kenny mubayiwa never be allowed anywhere near Dynamos and its money. These are the guys who make players play hungry and you know why they collapsed in the second half.

      1. Remigio Mabgwe

        Mutasa must be fired when he was not on the bench.Pliz lets be matured and respect the decision of the Dynamos adminstration.Mutasa has no say but otherwise he puts his recommendation.

  6. The problem with fanatic supporters is a psychological deficit which defines their disillusionment premised on their narcissistic self defense and denial to accept reality. Why can’t supporters collectively make evaluative assessment on the factors that negatively impact on the performance of Dynamos F.C., than abuse their mental faculties by engaging into barbaric behavioural antics. Are these guys so dull and unreasonable/irrational to accept that the club does not have money to buy world-class football players in the mould of Ronaldo???

  7. duzvi reteam,led by duzvi racoach pfuuuuuu

  8. After all Mutasa was in Zambia.

  9. nutty dreadlock


  10. Lets understand that even in Europe it happens what we need to do is to regroup and try to find out where we went wrong as an institution.Maybe when Shabanie scored theier second goal,instead of cheering our team on we resorted to booing the team thereby creating unnecessary pressure on the players,a situation which might have resulted in the third goal.

    1. kkkkkkkkk so booing dembare is a good strategy to defeat it because by doing so pressure mounts and the team concedes more goal kkkkk wedzera futi

  11. Reporter seems “HURT” by DeMbare loss, shame on you. Why not give a full report on the match ? Anonyadzisa uyayangisa shuwa shemu s’tereki !!!!

  12. Mutasa no problem it was his Assistant coach could not hold the team to the fullest that why we draw, nothing wrong with Head coach
    Mutasa for life pa Dembare woyeeeee

  13. ndikuisa mari yangu pabvaru bvaru zvotobaya kkkkkkkk kwaaaaaa mutasa game rawakahwina pahighlanders was a preparation iwe nazuze mukamera mapipiro kaChunga akatanga kuhukura achingohukura madingozi makungo hukura muchadamburwa muchihukura ediot achidamburwa futi muchihukura

  14. Ntouba MUST write a strong worded letter to FIFA, detailing the manner at which dynamos is handling his case. He left a wife and kids in Cameroon and for several months, they did not receieve a cent from the bread winner. Maybe right now the wife is opening legs for every Jack and Jill in Cameroon inorder to survive. Dynamos must be heavily fined or banned for refusing to pay Ntouba his monies.

  15. I believe right now Zvishavane yese irikufara. Mabvaruuuu woyeee! Woyeee!!!
    Life is sweet whenever i see lugubrious faces of dynamos fans. Happy happy happy happy!!!
    Bvaruuuuuu kuita kubvarurwa chaiko. Kkkkkkkk
