More International Play Recommended for Zimbabwe Women's Soccer

Former striker Ruth Nyandoro of Zimbabwe's Mighty Warriors women's soccer team, who retired to start a family with her husband, Warriors midfielder Esrom Nyandoro, is urging the Zimbabwe Football Association to give women players more experience internationally to build their experience and confidence.

South Africa’s Banyana defeated the Mighty Warriors 2-1 in a 2008 Olympic Games qualifier in South Africa on Sunday. A return match is set in Harare June 16.

Nyandoro told reporter Marvellous Mhlanga-Nyahuye of VOA's Studio 7 for Zimbabwe that she is still passionate about soccer and wants to see her former team win.
