Musona opens goal scoring account

By Skilder Makona

Warriors captain Knowledge Musona has rediscovered his scoring touch after getting his first goal of the season in the Belgian top-flight league.

Musona found the back of the net in his side KAS Eupen’s 2-2 stalemate against Antwerp in the Belgian Pro League this Sunday.

The Warriors skipper, who is slowly adapting to a central midfield position at his club, scored in the 53rd minute but was later substituted for Edo Kayembe.

It is also good news for Warriors coach, Zdravko Logarusic as most of Zimbabwe’s foreign-based players have been involved with their clubs since the restart of football in different countries across the globe.

With Zimbabwe set to clash with African champions Algeria in back-to-back AFCON qualifiers in November, it seems the Croatian gaffer will be spoilt for choice.

Midfielder Marvelous Nakamba has been in action for Aston Villa with the player determined to be at his best and command the first-team jersey this season.

There is also good news from the France based duo of Tino Kadewere and Marshall Munetsi who have also been seeing regular action at their respective clubs.

Although England based defender, Tendayi Darikwa has not yet featured in any match so far, his inclusion in the matchday squad for Nottingham Forest against Cardiff last Saturday, is an indication that the player is now fit to play after being sidelined for a year.

While he is yet to feature for the Warriors, Macauley Bonne has been playing regularly at Charlton Athletic in the English League One.

In China, Nyasha Mushekwi came in as a super-sub and scored a brace as his League One side, Zhejiang Greentown dispatched Jiangxi Liansheng 4-0.

Warriors ventral Defender, Teenage Hadebe played in his first game of the 2020/21 Turkish Super Lig after being introduced in the second half of Yeni Malatyaspor’s 1-1 draw with Goztepe.
