COSAFA CUP: Zimbabwe Gets One Point with Malawi, Senegal beat Mozambique

Zimbabwe gets one point draw with Malawi on Friday in a thrilling Group B clash at the 2021 COSAFA Cup that is being played in Nelson Mandela Bay.

The six-times champions rescued what could be a vital point, before west African guest nation Senegal edged Mozambique 1-0 in the later match in the pool.

Malawi will be frustrated after they let a two-goal lead slip in the 2-2 draw with a new-look Zimbabwe, who stormed back in the second half to claim a point.

It is the second stalemate in a row for The Warriors in Group B, while this was the first game for Malawi in the 2021 competition.
