FC Platinum brush aside DeMbare

If Dynamos interim coach Biggie Zuze underestimated the job on his hands when he took over the reigns at the club, he got a rude awakening delivered by a brilliant FC Platinum side in a Castle Lager Premier Soccer League at Rufaro Stadium yesterday.

DYNAMOS . . . . . . . . . . 0
FC PLATINUM . . . . .(2) 2

The defeat plunged the Harare giants deeper into a crisis.

Reigning Soccer Star of the Year, Rodwell Chinyengetere, netted two quality goals in a blistering opening 16 minutes of the match, scoring just after four minutes, before completing his brace 12 minutes later.

It’s no secret that Dynamos have been poor this season, but this was probably the team’s worst performance so far in this campaign. Or maybe, FC Platinum were just too dazzling.

Where the hosts were sluggish, FC Platinum were energetic. The visitors looked far much sharper and their intention was obvious from the first whistle as they simply kept the ball to themselves, as Dynamos chased shadows.

Their movement on and off the ball was brilliant, their passing was intricate and marvellous, and when the opening goal arrived, it was hardly a surprise for those watching this one-sided game.

Chinyengetere wriggled his way into the box before beating the keeper, Tonderai Mateyaunga with a low shot. Dynamos skipper, Marshall Machazane, should take the blame for the goal, his weak block in a 50/50 challenge failing to stop the Soccer Star of the Year in his tracks.

DeMbare, with Zuze looking on in disbelief, were simply shredded to bits, unable to contain the intricate play by the FC Platinum players, with the goal scorer Chinyengetere proving a nuisance to Machazane and company.

Within minutes, any hopes of recovery were effectively extinguished by another incisive and precise move up field by the visiting team, again involving Chinyengetere.

The attacking midfielder made a driving run forward and slipped a pass between defenders to Mkhokeli Dube and the veteran striker shielded the ball well, before laying it back to Chinyengetere, who immaculately curled it past the helpless Mateyaunga.


The gulf in quality between the two sides was too apparent and Zuze’s reaction to his guests’ dominance was to pull out Raphael Manuvire after just 32 minutes.

The midfielder, who is returning from injury, was not amused by the move and he returned the favour by ignoring his coach’s stretched hand for a handshake.

Dynamos players were looking more and more frustrated as the half wore on, and resorted to rough play, with the double scorer on the receiving end of most of the crude tackles.

How the clumsy Godfrey Mukambi was allowed by the normally punitive referee, Norman Matemera, to play at the first 45 minutes, is still a mystery.

So poor were Dynamos in the opening half that they had one chance at goal, a header by striker Quality Kangadze, which drifted wide.

The home side were fortunate to go to the break only two goals behind, because it could have been worse had Dube directed two free headers on target.

With the job done in the first half, FC Platinum simply had to manage the remainder of the match well and they did it to perfection.

It was such a polished performance that the home side supporters even couldn’t resist, cheering the away side’s every pass in the referees’ optional time. Dynamos players managed to touch the ball just three times in as many minutes.

  2. Though platinum played good football this reporter is so biased in praising them too much.

    1. Comment…Ncho. Read the Herald, the praise for FC Platinum is actually worse. I think the reporters are correct. They seem to be agreeing. Congratulations to FC. This year Dembare and Kepekepe are out of the championship race. There’s no consistency in winning. This is the time for them to start preparing for better things next season.

  3. Thanks Henry Mhara for reporting without fear or favour.

  4. Dynamos, madyiwamos, zvamburwamos, BPMOS, jujumos, boozersmos kkkkk mazitakupfekerana.

    I SALUTE PSL REFS FOR SHOWING SOME IMPROVEMENTS. WELLDONE.

    1. Take a chill pill man. It’s like you high or something, flooding the comments section like that. Don’t you have a life or something better to do?

  9. There is this id!ot dynamos edentulous defender by the name Godfrey Mukambi. Its high time he should be banned from playing soccer. He uses unorthodox means to win the ball. Last season he was caught on camera headbuttin Ngezi strike( Agusto) from behind. He is nicknamed ‘bhinya’ or ‘marabha’ NEXT TIME, REFS SHOULD PROTECT PLAYERS FROM ‘BHINYA’ OR ELSE ANGATIURAYIRE MA PLAYERS.

  10. ATTENTION TO ALL REFS : THANK YOU FOR DOING YOUR ROLES WELL. THIS SEASON AND THE PREVIOUS ONE, YOU HAVE BEEN PERFOMING YOUR ROLES SPLENDIDLY, I IMPLORE YOU TO CONDUCT YOUR DUTY WITHOUT FEAR OR FAVOUR. SHOW RED CARDS TO DANGEROUS PLAYERS, E.G (GODFREY MUKAMBI) A.K.A BHINYA OR MARABHA OF DYNAMOS. MAPLAYERS MAZHINJI ANOITWA KAFIRA MBERI NEMUNHU UYU PLIZ.

  11. Madzvinyu, is it true that, most saturdays and sundays you refuse to eat your supper? Some of you are even going to the extent of divorcing your wives. Kkkkkkk murimabharanzi. Kurambira mukadzi kuti chiteam chemarombe chirikuzvamburwa seri ne seri? Hahahahahaha lol
