Highlanders ready for Sundowns



One of Zimbabwe’s oldest clubs Highlanders will on Wednesday play against South Africa’s Mamelodi Sundowns, and the hosts are excited about the prospect of tackling one of Africa’s richest teams.

Highlanders chairman Peter Dube expressed his delight at the match-up, which will be staged at Barbourfields Stadium.

“You do not get these chances coming your way regularly,” said Dube. “It’s an honour to play a brand like Sundowns, one of the biggest and most organised teams in Africa.

“We certainly have a lot to learn from them and we hope we can foster relationships that can benefit both teams. Our boys’ morale will certainly be at its best as the match will profile them and they will be out to impress.”

He believes fans are likely to come out in their numbers given the fact that there are Zimbabweans in the Brazilians line-up.

“We have our own Bulawayo boy Esrom Nyandoro coming to clash with Highlanders at Barbourfields Stadium,” said Dube.

“It’s a momentous occasion not to be missed and there is also Nyasha Mushekwi, one of their top strikers, who is from here so we are looking forward to a good game,” concluded Dube.
