Government to help Warriors



The Zimbabwe Football Association (Zifa) have various debts totaling close to US $4m and hence they wanted to pull the national team out of the World Cup 2014 qualifiers, which start on March 22 against Egypt in Cairo.

But the good news is that the government wants to help the association, so that the Warriors can continue their quest for a World Cup finals berth in Brazil.

Minister of Mines and Mining Development Obert Mpofu said that he will talk to other government ministries and departments to make sure that the national team takes part in the qualifiers.

Mpofu, who is an ardent Highlanders supporters, said the Warriors are the pride of the nation, and they therefore cannot afford to withdraw from Fifa’s showpiece event.

“I know the other junior teams have failed to continue in junior competitions due to financial problems,” Mpofu said.

“This time around the government should come along and help the national team. “We will be sitting down with Zifa to see where and how we can help them so that Warriors continue their campaign in the World Cup,” Mpofu concluded.
