Zimbabwean national team head coach Norman Mapeza has admitted that his team is unlikely to qualify for the 2022 FIFA World Cup.
The Warriors suffered a second consecutive defeat in Group G of Africa qualifiers on Saturday when they lost 3-1 to the Black Stars from Ghana.
According to coach Norman Mapeza, it now seems impossible for his team to qualify for the world tournament next year.
“Sometimes you have to be realistic in life, the chances are very slim now,” said the coach, as quoted in the Sunday Mail.
He continued, “However, we do not lose hope and will continue to work hard.
“We are also using the remaining games to prepare for the finals of the Africa Cup in Cameroon in January.”
Zimbabwe will face Ghana for the second time in Group G of qualifying for the 2022 FIFA World Cup on Tuesday, October 12, 2021.
