Zimbabwe Junior Soccer Team Looking To 2008 Olympics Qualifier

Zimbabwe’s under-23 Young Warriors soccer team were pushed out of the 2007 All-Africa Games on Sunday when they lost to Mozambique 1-0 in Maputo.

Coach Misheck Chidzambwa expressed some disappointment, but said he has shifted his focus to the next leg in qualifying play for the 2008 Olympics. The Young Warriors are scheduled to face Cameroon's junior squad on March 25.

Sports reporter Marvellous Mhlanga-Nyahuye of VOA's Studio 7 for Zimbabwe asked Chidzambwa about complaints referees favored Mozambique in Sunday’s match.
