Harare City date Zanaco

Zimbabwe CAF Confederations Cup representatives Harare City face a daunting task of turning the tables against Zambian six-time champions Zanaco when the two teams meet in the first round second leg tie of the continental competition at Sunset Stadium in Lusaka, Zambia today.


Harare City trail the hosts 2-1 after falling to a well-drilled Zanaco side at Rufaro on Saturday last week and the Sunshine City Boys need to win by two clear goals to progress to the next round of the competition.

Coach Taurai Mangwiro refused to throw in the towel in the face of a near-impossible task.

“Yes, we are down, but I take lot of courage from the fact that they came to Zimbabwe and scored two goals and with the right attitude, we can still go there and cause an upset,” he said.

“Zanaco are a very technically and tactically sound team and they do have the experience. It was difficult at home last week but we have had an opportunity to watch them play. I believe we have worked on our shortcomings and hopefully we will overturn the deficit and cause an upset.”

The Sunshine City boys left the country on Friday night without the duo of Francesco Zekumbawire and Jimmy Tigere who are nursing injuries.
