THINGS are beginning to shape up again for Warriors skipper Knowledge Musona who silenced his critics at the weekend when he scored his first professional goal this season on his debut appearance for his new Belgian Jupiler Pro-League football side KAS Eupen.

Musona —who had been frozen out of competitive football for almost a year— declared on Friday when he was unveiled at KAS Eupen that he “will fight every minute on and off the pitch for this beautiful team until the end of season”.

The 29-year-old Aces Youth Soccer Academy alumni was handed the starting place in Benat San Jose’s side on Saturday, only a day after he was unveiled and played 77 minutes. And, it took the Zimbabwe national team captain 10 minutes to make the first impression with a goal in a league match against Charleroi. KAS Eupen started badly on Saturday evening after Charleroi raced to a fifth minute lead, courtesy of Mamadou Fall but Musona ensured a share of the spoils with a “gift” goal from the opponents’ goalkeeper Nicolas Penneteau. “The Smiling Assassin” showed quick thinking when the ball landed on his feet after the goalkeeper had miscued a clearance and he responded with a low grounder into the empty goal.
