Zimbabwe are in danger of being eliminated from the African nations cup championship at a very early stage should they lose to Mali in the next group match. Zimbabwe have taken just two points from the matches against Uganda and Burkina Faso. This is the tournament held in Africa in order to give the locally placed players an opportunity to win trophies. Ian Gorowa, who has previously coached the likes of Ajax Cape Town, says that he is worried about the poor attacking display shown by his team in this tournament.
Scoring goals has been a major problem for the team, although their form has been slowly improving in the last few months. Even though they dominated the last two matches, they have failed to score. Ahead of the match with Morocco, Gorowa said that this will be a must win game for the Zimbabwe national team if they are to progress to the latter stages of the competition. He said that the 0-0 draw with Uganda was very disappointing, but he is hoping that his attack finds form at just the right stage in the tournament.
Zimbabwe have been looking good in recent months as they have not suffered a defeat since the 2-0 loss to Zambia back in July of last year.
“I have to put it lightly how I am feeling about it [the 0-0 loss to Uganda]. It was a must-win game, we also created chances, if we didn’t then I would be worried. We had to win though, and now fate is not in our hands because you never know. We have to compete and they have to score goals, we haven’t scored any in this tournament, so it’s a bit of a worry. We wanted to correct the mistakes we had against Morocco,” Gorowa said.
