Warriors are set to play their second game of the Qatar 2022 World Cup qualifiers campaign away to Ethiopia tomorrow (Tuesday) at 15:00 hours local time not 18:00 hours as initially reported

 

“The boys will play Ethiopia tomorrow at 3pm not 6pm,” said an official from ZIFA.
Zimbabwe are set to play the Walies of Ethiopia at their 60,000 capacity Bahir Dar stadium in the city of Bahir Dar, Ethiopia.

 

The match comes exactly four days after Logarusic’s troops played to a disappointing nil all draw when they hosted neighbours South Africa at the National Sports Stadium last Friday.

 

The disjointed and dismally performing Warriors team failed to capitalise on the home advantage against Bafana Bafana.

This resulted in the team earning a single point in the much-anticipated Limpopo derby which was played in a empty stadia.

 

The rescheduled encounter was the Warrors’ opening World Cup qualifier match.
It was initially supposed to be played in June, however due to a surge in Covid-19 cases FIFA postponed all the qualifiers to September 2021.

 

Meanwhile, Ethiopia will face the Warriors tomorrow coming from a 1 nil defeat they were handed by Ghana away in their last World Cup qualifier game last week.

 

At the moment, Ghana tops the group with three points while South Africa and Zimbabwe who have one point each are seated on second and third positions respectively.

 

Ethiopia are the Group G anchors with zero points. The group consists of Zimbabwe, Ghana, South Africa and Ethiopia.
Meanwhile Bafana Bafana land vital win over Ghana to steer World Cup qualifying quest on track

Bongokuhle Hlongwane scored in the final minutes to give Bafana Bafana an all-important 1-0 victory against Ghana in their 2022 FIFA World Cup qualifier at FNB Stadium on Monday.

 

The win sees Bafana Bafana (4 points) take first place in Group G, with Ghana (3 points) moving to second place.
