THE Zimbabwe Warriors ended their 2021 African Nations Championship-Chan campaign without a victory after a one-nil loss to Mali last night.
Demba Diallo scored the goal that made the difference after finding the back of the net with just 11 minutes played.
It was the Warriors’ third defeat in three matches after a one-nil defeat by hosts Cameroon and a three-one loss to Burkina Faso.
Zimbabwe ended the campaign at the bottom of the group a without a point while mali are the group winners with seven points followed by Cameroon on five, with Burkina Faso third on four points.
It is also zimbabwe’s worst campaign at the chan tournament after failing to collect a single point in three matches.
Zimbabwe ended with three points at the inaugural chan tournament in 2009 and another three in 2011 before reaching the semi-finals in 2014.
The warriors had a poor showing in 2016 but they bowed out with at least point.
