THE Young Mighty Warriors are in Mozambique en-route to Blantyre where they will play Malawi in an Under-20 Women’s World Cup qualifier at Kamuzu Stadium on Saturday afternoon. The team left Harare on Thursday morning by road.
Coach Rosemary Mugadza, who picked her final 18-member squad before departure is confident of a good outing but has warned against underrating the hosts, who have a vibrant schools league.
Mugadza maintained the bulk of the team which featured in the inaugural COSAFA Under-20 Women Championships in August last year.
Zimbabwe will host Malawi in the return leg on February 1 at Barbourfields.
