Warriors outplay Lesotho
Prince Dube headed the Warriors into the lead either side of the half-time break and then second-half substitute Wellington Taderera extended the advantage with a powerful grounder six minutes from time.
The Warriors had done well to keep their opponents at bay for almost 90 minutes but they should have left the stadium disappointed after they conceded a late penalty which handed the visitors a vital away goal.
Mhlopo Kalake converted deep into added time and this goal could work against the Warriors in the decisive second leg in Maseru next month.
CHAN is reserved exclusively for home-grown players and Zimbabwe are hunting for a fifth appearance while Lesotho are still hoping to make their debut appearance at next year’s finals in Cameroon.
