Zimbabwean sports fans are celebrating what is probably one their best weekend.
Zimbabwe’s sports teams have given fans something they have not seen lately – victory from Zimbabwe’s rugby and soccer teams!
The first triumph came from the rugby team at Prince Edward School, where the Sables beat Kenya 28-20.
The euphoria of victory carried over to the Warriors on Monday who arrived in Harare this morning to cheers from fans who welcomed them as heroes, following their expected 2-1 win over the flames of Malawi at the Kamuzu Stadium in Blantyre.
Warriors fan, Peter Musenda, who was among the excited fans, said he wants to see the Warriors win the next home match against Guinea.
Soccer analyst Stanley Katsande attributes the Warriors victory to coach Kalisto Pasuwo, whom he says has done well since being appointed Warriors coach nine month ago.
Not so happy with the flames performance, Malawi took it out on the coach and fired Jack Chamangwana. Katsande, however feels, this was a mistake, saying the problem is more with the quality of players.
In rugby, the sables’ 28-20 win over Kenya puts them in a very strong place to reclaim their Africa Cup title as Kenya is one of the biggest names in international rugby.
The Sables now need to beat Namibia and Tunisia to claim what many think is rightly theirs.
