INLINE Football Academy and Cyclone Stars will lock horns in the semi-final match of the Zimbabwe Women’s Football NetOne Knockout tournament today at BfjG Stadium.
Both coaches from the two sides told Southern Eye Sport yesterday they were ready for the match.
Inline made their way to the semi-final after beating Autkaland Queens of Bindura 4-3 while Cyclone eased past Flame Lil Queens 2-0 to make their way through.
Cyclone head coach Prosper Mandzungu said although they respect their warriors for the arsenal they have, his team will be at its best to fight for the ticket to the finals.
The team is full of young stars graduated from Cyclone Starlets who include Felistus Muchekeni, Greater Bhande and Elizabeth Bvunzawapaya.
Cyclone Stars will be banking on the experience of the Mighty Warriors star Felistus Muzongondi and key forward Colleta Jesinau.
“We are going to play our usual game. We respect our opponents. They have a modern coach who is tactically good and good players as well.
“We have been underdogs in this tournament from first match, so I am sure we are going in this game as underdogs as well, but we want to spring a surprise and make our way to the finals,” Mandzungu said.
Inline Academy coach Zithethelelwe Sibanda said her side will play as a team to obtain positive results.
“We are prepared for the match. I cannot single out individuals. We are looking forward to play as a team and get the good result. We are hoping to win tomorrow (today),” Sibanda said.
