MAMELODI Sundowns striker Cuthbert Malajila says the Warriors have a chance to qualify for the 2015 Africa Cup of Nations finals in Morocco despite the long route they have to take.

The Warriors travel to Tanzania this weekend for this weekend’s first round, first leg tie at the National Stadium before the return leg in two weeks’ time in Harare.

If they win, they will meet either Mozambique or South Sudan.

And if they win the second round, they will get into Group F where they will take on Zambia, Cape Verde Islands and Niger to make the 2015 finals that will be staged in Morocco early next year.

“It’s a long road to Morocco but we need to start well against Tanzania away and that will give us the confidence we need going into the next games,” said Malajila.

“The biggest advantage we have is that we are playing away from home in the first leg and if we can win there, the better for us.

“We have a good squad that is capable of qualifying for next year’s finals, but we do not underrate any team.”

Malajila won the league title with Sundowns, scoring the third goal in the 3-0 win over SuperSport United and feels inspired ahead of the trip to Tanzania.

“I did not have one of my best seasons because of injuries but I am happy we won the league title and that should push me to better things both for my club and my country,” the former Chapungu, Highlanders and Dynamos striker said.

He will line up with Mpumalanga Black Aces striker Tendai Ndoro who has become a hit in South Africa after only three months in the Absa Premiership.

Ndoro arrived in January but had to wait for his work permit before making his debut. When he did, it was plain sailing as he hit the nets seven times in the 13 matches that he played to ensure Aces qualified for next season MTN8.

The Warriors are expected to leave on Friday.
