Zimbabwe Warriors Held by Ethiopia

Zimbabwe Warriors were held 1-1  by Ethiopia to wrapp up their 2022 World Cup Qualifying Group G campaigns at the National Sports Stadium in Harare on Sunday afternoon.


Both teams were playing only for pride after being eliminated from contention for the playoffs, with the Warriors hoping to claim a first win after an opening goal from Kudakwashe Mahachi.

The visitors found the back of the netbut through a late leveller from Abubeker Nasir Ahmed.


The result means Ethiopia finished third on the log with five points, while Zimbabwe claimed the wooden spoon with just two points from six matches.

Zimbabwe started strongly but struggled to create chances with which to test out Ethiopia goalkeeper Teklemariam Shanko, with striker David Moyo left somewhat frustrated by a lack of clinical service.
