WARRIORS goalkeeper Hebert Rusawo has apologised to the nation after his penalty was saved in a Warriors defeat at National Sports Stadium on Sunday.

The Warriors won 1-0 in 90 minutes, making the aggregate score line 1-1 and forcing the game to penalties.

Namibia won 1-0 in the reverse fixture of the CHAN qualifier.

Prince Dube had scored Zimbabwe’s goal just before half time in Sunday’s encounter.

Namibia eventually won 5-4 on penalties after Rusawo failed to save any of the spot kicks and missing his own.

Devon Chafa, Milton Ncube, Praise Tonha and Dauda scored their penalties.

“I don’t have much to say,” Rusawo said. “I just want to say I’m sorry to everyone. It is a game of football. I don’t have much to say.”

The Black Rhinos goalie didn’t seem to have much confidence when he took the spot kick.

It had to take his teammates to tell him that it was his turn to take the fourth kick.

After the match captain Dennis Dauda said the crowd did not offer him enough support.

“They were boos from the crowd and he could have lost his confidence in the process. It is very unfortunate for us and we are very sad,” said Dauda.
