Injury Benches Zimbabwe Striker Marere In CAF Confederation Match

Striker Benjamin Marere of Zimbabwe's Mwana Africa Football Club, instrumental in his team’s progression to the second leg of the CAF Confederation Cup tournament, won't be on the field Sunday against Angola's Interclube due to an ankle injury.

Mwana Africa won the first leg against Interclube 2-0 two weeks ago in Harare and is favored heading into the match in Luanda. But critics are cautioning the team against overconfidence lest they succumb to the Angolans playing on their home turf.

Marvellous Mhlanga-Nyahuye of VOA’s Studio 7 for Zimbabwe asked Marere how he felt about being benched just as he hit his stride, and what he expects on Sunday.
