The Zimbabwe national football team was recently disbanded, while the opportunity to construct a new team was given to the head coach Rahman Gumbo. He has had to select a number of players from the international teams for youngsters. The players from the likes of Zimbabwe international under 17, under 23, and under 20 teams have given Rahman Gumbo lot of confidence that Zimbabwe has a bright future. Rahman Gumbo was recently at a match between Dynamos and CAPS United. Dynamos managed a 3-0 victory in the match.
Speaking after the match, the Zimbabwe National team head coach Rahman Gumbo said that the future looks bright for Zimbabwe due to the number of promising youngsters playing in the country. Simba Sithole and Denver Mukumba were amongst the promising players in the match. Even though Rahman Gumbo has not revealed the final list of players who will be making it into the Zimbabwe national team, he has said that he should not be too difficult given the quality of players at his disposal. The Asiagate scandal that has been a major story led to the disbanding of the Zimbabwe national team along with various other changes at board level. The team had just failed to qualify for the 2013 African cup of nations.
“I am impressed with the young players. They are doing very well in the local league and I hope when given the chance to play in the national team they will rise up to the occasion. We have very good young talented players who will fit in the national team. I am pleased so far,” said the Zimbabwe head coach after watching the match. It has been an up-and-down form for the national team with just two victories in the last six matches including the latest defeat against Angola.
