WARRIORS goalkeeper Elvis Chipezeze said they are only gunning for a win in their Qatar 2022 World Cup qualifier against Somalia at the National Sports Stadium tomorrow.
Zimbabwe fell 1-0 to the Somalis in the first leg of this preliminary stage in match that was played in Djibouti due to political instability in Somalia.
The result left the football fraternity shocked and Chipezeze said they don’t want to come up with excuses again after tomorrow.
The Baroka shot stopper said everyone in camp knows what is at stake and they only have one option – to qualify.
“We just have to go there and work very hard because we know what is at stake.
“The only option is to qualify and to go into the next round. We just have to work hard and come up with a positive result,” said Chipezeze.
He said it was painful losing to one of the lowly ranked teams in the world and will work on not repeating the same mistake.
Though he accepts football is full of surprises, he assured the nation of a positive result.
“We were unlucky, it’s all part of the game, if you miss a lot of chances they punish you and its game over. Football is also full of surprises but we will work for something positive come Tuesday.
“We don’t want to repeat that same mistake, it was painful. Six minutes to full time, they scored despite all the dominance we had.
“Everyone is geared up for the game, everyone knows what is at stake. We just have to do the work come Tuesday. It’s as simple as a that,” he said.
