AmaZulu, DeMbare stare early exits

Staff Writer

ZIMBABWE’S continental soccer competition representatives – AmaZulu and Dynamos – face early exits from the Champions league and Cup Winners’ competition.



rdana, Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif”>The two domestic league champions, expected to leave today for Angola and Ghana respectively for the second legs of crucial ties, are under immense pressure having performed unconvincingly in the first legs at home.


An uphill task is what Dynamos would be hoping to overcome in Ghana having lost 1-0 to King Faysal in the first leg of the Caf Confederations Cup first round qualifier in Harare a fortnight ago.


A pathetic performance at the National Sports Stadium by the famous Harare side saw the well-drilled Ghanaians score a vital away goal.


With the kind of well-coordinated play exuded by the Ghanaian team in the first leg, the Luke Masomere-coached Dynamos would need to produce something from the extraordinary to come up with a positive result.


Dynamos’ performance this season has been in fits and starts.


League champions AmaZulu find themselves in the same invidious position,having played a goal-less draw with Angola’s Petro Athletico in the first leg of the African Champions League in Bulawayo a fortnight ago.


The Zimbabwean representatives have been battling to secure funds required for the trips and indications yesterday were that both had made breakthroughs and could make the trips today.
