Warriors legends in 2-all draw with Barca greats

ZENZO Moyo and Edward Sadomba scored two wonder goals in the second half to cancel out Patrick Kluivert’s first half brace in an exciting exhibition match played between the Warriors greats and FC Barcelona legends at the National Sports Stadium on Sunday.

Warriors legends coach Sunday Chidzambwa started the first half with older Warriors legends among them Moses Chunga and Madinda Ndlovu who played second fiddle to some of the world’s once celebrated footballers.

Dutch legend Kluivert came twice to punish the hosts with the Warriors legends going to the break trailing by two goals.

Chidzamba then deployed the more recent Warriors greats who took control of the match with the Barca greats being made to chase shadows for 45 minutes.

A now potbellied Moyo defied his big frame to rifle home a spectacular bicycle kick to pull a goal back in the 55th minute.

Pacy winger Edward Sadomba also came from the bench to find his 80th minute cross fly into the roof of the Barca legends goal to level the scores.

With more prevision, the Warriors legends could have doubled their scores.

Other thrilling scenes saw Prophet Walter Magaya introduced after 76 minutes to excite the crowd with some inch perfect long passes while Ronald Sibanda reminded the fans of his defence splitting passes that once illuminated the local football scene a decade ago.

While Magaya is not a Warriors legend, he was being honoured for his immense contribution to Zimbabwean football.

Former World Cup winner Rivaldo Ferreira was pulled out after 65 minutes and he went straight to terraces to give Vice President Phelekezela Mphoko his jersey.

Other players who featured for the Zimbabwe Warriors greats include the now stocky Johannes Ngodzo, Peter Ndlovu, Desmond Maringwa, Bekithemba Ndlovu, Gift Muzadzi  and a handful more.

The FC Barca legends played their match 24 hours after beating Mozambique legends 1-0 in a match played in the neighbouring country on Saturday.

The match was played in a friendly atmosphere with no yellow card shown to any player on the field during the entire period.

Meanwhile, an earlier friendly match played between Dynamos and Highlanders ended in a 1-all draw.
