Mighty Warriors suffer Machingura blow



The senior national women’s football team, the Mighty Warriors, have been further crippled in the striking department ahead of their trip to South America this weekend after striker Rufaro Machingura failed to report for camp.

Mighty Warriors team manager Charity Munemo confirmed that the gangly striker, arguably one of the best strikers in the team, is yet to join the rest of the squad, and the technical team have decided to drop her from the travelling crew.

“We have been sending requests to her so that she can come for camp, but it seems she has personal problems. The technical team will have to work with the players available,” said Munemo.

The Rosemary Mugadza-coached team were invited to Uruguay where they will take part in the South American Cup against the hosts, Chile, Paraguay and women’s football heavyweights Brazil.

They are expected to leave the country on Saturday morning. Zimbabwe is using the tournament to prepare for the African Women Championships and Olympic qualifiers, expected to start later this year.

But the Mighty Warriors’ preparations for the trip have not been smooth-sailing as striker Rudo Neshamba is already out after she excused herself, while defender Nobuhle Majika has problems with her travelling documents.
