Zimbabwe put in another superb display as they defeated Mozambique 4-0 to take a firm grip on Group C with two wins and eight goals scored from their games so far.

While perhaps not at their flowing best, the Mighty Warriors were still too strong for the Mozambicans, and took an early lead through Marjoury Nyaumwe.

Majory Nyaumwe opened and closed the scoring for the Mighty Warriors in the eighth and 67th minutes.

Emmaculate Msipa netted the second goal in the 19th minute while Rudo Neshamba converted a penalty two minutes from half time.

Although the Mighty Warriors had a resounding victory coach Sithethelelwe Sibanda said, "the result is not a true reflection of the game as Mozambique was tough, I do not want to think about the semis as yet, because eSwatini will be a challenge in our final group fixture."

A second successive defeat in the group means Mozambique are technically out of the competition, though they still have a fixture to honour.

Mozambique's coach Miguel Macapa, was not happy with the result as he said that, "they take some hard lessons from their participation this year."

Zimbabwe command group C with six points from two matches followed by eSwatini with three points from one encounter.

Angola are third on the table without a point from one game, while Mozambique are at the bottom pointless after playing a full complement of matches.
