MIGHTY Warriors coach Sithethelelwe Sibanda admits they have a lot to improve despite winning 1-0 over Namibia in their opening COSAFA Women’s Championship encounter.
Though Zimbabwe had a number of experienced players, they struggled to unlock the Namibia defence.
The 17th minute goal by Marjoury Nyaumwe secured the Mighty Warriors a winning start at the tournament.
“We still have a lot to improve on but at the end of the day we showed character by grabbing points, will have done well.
“We struggled on a lot of situations but I am happy we managed a win,” said Sibanda.
While they promise work on grey areas, Sibanda is happy that they managed to find the back of the net.
“It was a great game from the Namibian team and they showed a lot of character especially the second half which was a tough one.
“At the end of the day I am happy with the result, at least it is well-done to my players who managed to maintain our tactical shape in defending to deny them a goal.
“Overally Namibia played a very good game,” she said.
Namibia’s Eddelsisingh Naris was voted player of the match.
Mighty Warriors will play guests Uganda, who recorded a 4-3 win against Swaziland in their opening match, today.
