Zimbabwean soccer plumbed the depths of despair in their last home match when a pedestrian Nigerian side humiliated the Warriors in a World Cup qualifier last month that cost the incumbent coaches their jobs. Sibanda rued the failure by injured skipper Peter Ndlovu to make it for the do-or-die semi-final, but Mhlauri might not even miss the South Africa-based hitman, who has recently been out of form in national team colours. However, Mhlauri got a timely boost with the arrival yesterday of South Africa-based linkman Charles Yohane, who with Esrom Nyandoro are the only foreign-based professionals in camp. The Warriors technical team did not call up any Europe-based players, while the absence of most players playing in South Africa will give local-based fringe players a chance to prove their mettle.

The union does not have a problem with some players earning as much as they would in Europe because this would be good for the local game.
Bidvest Wits coach Roger de Sa says players have become commodities and everything depends on whether the buyer can afford them. That is why you will find teams paying so much for them. You find players who are overpaid and ones who are underpaid. It happens and we cannot change it.
It is up to the people who are paying the money. If you can afford to pay that money then you spend it.Samuel Mapondo is on Facebook.
