Zimbabwe midfielder, Marshall Munetsi believes the Warriors can post a good result against the Super Eagles of Nigeria.

Baltemar Brito’s side will entertain the Super Eagles in a 2026 FIFA World Cup qualifying fixture at the Huye Stadium, Butare on Sunday.

The Warriors held Rwanda to a 0-0 draw in their opening fixture on Wednesday.

The Super Eagles are the overwhelming favourites to win the contest, but Munetsi insists they can shock the visitors.

“It’s going to be a good challenge against Nigeria and I’m sure it will be a game of fine margins,” Munetsi told the Herald.

“They played on Thursday and didn’t have much time to recover so we can use that to our advantage.

“Obviously the team has big name players but even then if they don’t have time to recover and all the travels it might be difficult for them to adjust. We just need to be confident and have a good game plan for us to get maximum points.”

The Stade de Reims player also called on the country’s supporters to keep supporting the team.

“People were expecting a win against Rwanda but they must know that this was the first time we were playing together as a team. Some of us are doing well at our clubs and the supporters obviously expect us to do the same for the national team so we are trying to make sure that we try to get to the standards of winning these kind of games,”

“Our supporters need to be patient, we will keep on doing our best to make sure that we try to win the game against Nigeria and ultimately try to qualify for the World Cup”.
