Knowledge Musona marked his tenure as Warriors captain with a sweet and well taken treble as Zimbabwe thumped Liberia 3-0 in their Group G Day One clash on Sunday at the National Sports Stadium, Harare.

 

With the win, the Warriors assumed top spot on goal difference after DR Congo beat Congo 3-1 in the other Group G match earlier on Saturday in Kinshasa.

 

It took Musona 24 minutes to register his first goal when he swept home a Danny Deco Phiri pass from inside the box, settling the home team's nerves.

 

Few other chances were created before the breather, but none came to any fruition as the strikers lacked accuracy in front goal. 

 

But that mattered little as interim coach Norman Mapeza's half time pep talk seemed to spur the Warriors on and this time Phiri's teammate at Golden Arrows Kuda Mahachi was the man behind it.

 

Beating one man and dashing to the byline, the impressive Mahachi sent a perfect cutback for Musona to complete his double on 49 minutes.

 

It was done deal, and three for Musona on 62 minutes, as defender Patson Jaure, growing in confidence with each outing provided the assist for the KV Ostende man to slam the ball home-a perfect ending to a well scripted story by Mapeza's boys.

 

Between now and March next year, the Warriors will take a deserved rest before resuming their campaign aganst Congo away, but Mapeza fancies friendly matches despite the fine start.

 

“This is the fine and positive start that we needed and we will take it one game at a time. Between now and March we need to get some friendly matches to keep the boys in shape; otherwise am happy with the boy's overall performance and result,” Mapeza said.

 

Three-goal hero Musona refused to take the glory for his hat-trick saying “I am happy that i scored three goals but that could not have been possible without the effort of the whole team”.
