1 Mins read

The Warriors concluded their disappointing 2022 Qatar World Cup qualification campaign with a dull 1-1 draw against Ethiopia at the National Sports Stadium in Harare on Sunday afternoon.

Zimbabwe went to the half time with a 1 nil lead courtesy of a 37th-minute goal from Kuda Mahachi, but the visitors levelled matters in the second half, just three minutes before the end of regulation time.

The World Cup qualification campaign is one of the worst performances Zimbabwe has made in the last decade.

The Warriors started the Group G World Cup qualification campaign with a goalless draw against South Africa at home and went on to lose the next four matches. Zimbabwe lost 3 – 1 to Ghana away and 1 nil in the reverse fixture at home.

The Warriors lost 1 nil to Ethiopia in Bahir Dar and lost to South Africa by the same margin in the second leg in Johannesburg.

In the six matches Zimbabwe played in Group G, it conceded seven goals, four at the hands of Ghana, two from Ethiopia and neighbors South Africa scored one. The Warriors also managed to score only two goals, one in their 3-1 loss away to Ghana last month and Sunday`s goal at home in the 1-1 draw against Ethiopia.

They ended the campaign with two points on their tally, while third-placed Ethiopia sits on 5 points.
