Zimbabwe 3 - 1 Tanzania

Zimbabwe's Warriors thumped Tanzania 3-nil in an international friendly played at the National Sports Stadium in Harare this Sunday afternoon.

Knowledge Musona broke the deadlock early in the first half before quick second half goals from Matthew Rusike (55mins) and Nyasha Mushekwi (59mins)settled matters.

Goalkeeper, Tatenda Mukuruva had a good day in office after three superb saves in the first half ensured that the Warriors went to half-time leading.

The match gave coach Callisto Pasuwa a chance to access his charges and try various combinations as the team prepares for the 2017 AFCON in Gabon.

Zimbabwe were drawn in the same group as Algeria, Tunisia and Senegal and with all these teams active over the weekend with 2018 World Cup qualifiers, Zimbabwe could not afford to miss the international break.
