Mighty Warriors in flying start!! COSAFA CASTLE CUP LOG STANDINGS

Striker Rutendo Makore netted all four goals as Zimbabwe made an excellent start to their 2017 COSAFA Women’s Championship Group A campaign with a 4-0 victory over Madagascar at the Barbourfields Stadium in Bulawayo on Wednesday. THEY WERE LEADING 1-0 AT HALF TIME BUT CAME BACK STRONGER IN THE 2ND HALF AND FINISHED THEM OFF WITH 3 MORE GOALS!!

 

Zambia and Malawi shared nine goals between them in the other game in Group A, with the She-Polopolo coming out 6-3 winners thanks to a hat-trick from Misozi Zulu as she showed her prowess in front of goal.

Namibia, who have twice before been to the semifinals of this competition, opened their 2017 campaign with a 4-0 thumping of Botswana.

Only the top teams in each pool, as well as the best runner-up, make it through to the semifinals.

Three-time winners South Africa will get their Group C campaign under way today when they take on Lesotho at the Luveve Stadium (kick-off 16h30 local; 14h30 GMT).

Banyana Banyana have had a smooth build-up to the tournament and are defending a proud record in the competition having won 18 of their previous 19 games. Their only defeat was in the 2011 final to Zimbabwe.
