Mighty Warriors started their AFCON qualifiers campaign a good note after beating Eswatini 3-1 at the National Sports Stadium on Wednesday.
Marjorie Nyaumwe, Privilege Mupeti and captain Emmaculate Msipa were on target while Lesego Nonjabuliso scored the consolation for the visitors.
Mighty Warriors coach Sithetheliwe “Kwinji 15” Sibanda said she was satisfied with her girls’ performance.
“We dominated possession and the girls scored three crucial goals and it’s unfortunate that we conceded a poor goal.. We lost concentration.
“We could have scored many goals but the girls did a great job, we can’t take that away from them. They deserve credit,” she said.
She reckons that fitness levels is now getting better since most of the players were inactive due to COVID-19 restrictions.
“Fitness level level is now better, we are slowly getting there.
“It’s a process but I am pleased. We are not yet 100 percent fit.
“It is a process which can not be completed overnight.
“In terms of our game plan, all we want is to keep the possession. At times we were a bit slow but we can improve in the coming games,” she said.
“We could have done better. Credit also goes to Eswathini, they have good defense.
“And we should have buried the chances to widen the scoreline but it is what it is we are satisfied.”
