ZIMBABWE will face Lesotho in the semi-finals of the Cosafa Castle Cup after knocking out Swaziland 2-1 on Sunday night.

Captain Ovidy Karuru scored the opener in the first half for his sixth goal of the tournament before Felix Badenhorst leveled the scores soon after the breather.

Substitute Knox Mutizwa then scored the Warriors winner when he connected an Ocean Mushure corner kick.

Warriors coach Sunday Chidzambwa was happy with the win.

“I’m pleased with the performance of the guys. They played very well, especially in the first half.

“In the first half, we could have easily scored maybe two or three goals but we missed a good number of chances,” he said.

“Come second half, Swaziland were in control but we managed to score a winner. I’m happy.”

Zambia face Tanzania in the other semi-final. But Chidzambwa says they have to concentrate on the immediate fixture.

“I can only talk about the final after we play Lesotho. You never know in football, we might lose against them. Let’s play the Lesotho game first then we talk about the final if we get to the final,” he said.
