ALEC Mudimu says their friendly game against Malawi has helped them know areas to work on when they face Algeria in back-to-back AFCON qualifiers next month.

The Warriors returned home last night after a goalless draw against the Flames earlier in the day.

“It was a good game for us though it was goalless and l believe it has given us directions on what we need to work on going forward.

“Friendly matches are important because they tell us where we are going so that everyone will be ready when we face Algeria,” he said.

Zdravko Logarusic’s men were nowhere near convincing as they played their first match in close to a year, owing to the coronavirus outbreak

Mudimu said they would be ready to face Algeria.

 

“Obviously we know Algeria is one of the biggest teams in Africa.

 

“Of course it’s a very tough game for the national team. But I expect a lot of discipline throughout, confidence and character for the team regardless there more than enough in the squad to produce results,” he said.

“Algeria are the defending champions and they started the campaign on a high note and it’s a team which has a lot big name players playing in big clubs in Europe.

 

“So the odds are against us when we face them but we have been good underdogs even in our previous two Afcon campaigns.”

 

Mudimu said he wants to do his best for the Warriors.

 

“Playing for my career is always something l look forward to and to always push myself and the team to make our own history whilst enjoying the good moments together.
