  • Comoros 0-1 Zimbabwe (Michael Tapera)

PRETORIA – Zimbabwe interim coach Jairos Tapera got his first win as Warriors coach after his charges defeated Comoros in the COSAFA Cup 2024 match courtesy of a solitary goal from Michael Tapera.

The unpopular Manica Diamonds coach has presided over three games, winning one and losing two in the process.

On Thursday afternoon, the Warriors started their 2024 COSAFA Cup campaign with a 1-0 win over Group B rivals Comoros in a match played at the Nelson Mandela Bay Stadium in Gqeberha.

Zimbabwe returned to their favourite tournament after a chaotic outing in the 2026 FIFA World Cup qualifiers recently in which they lost 1-2 to Lesotho and 3-1 to South Africa.

Tapera decided to play the game without the much hyped British born players including goalkeeper Tavaziva Marley (Brendford B) among others who were kept on the bench for the umpteenth time without any reason.

The gamble paid off though as Manica Diamonds striker Michael Tapera scored the only goal in the second half following a cross from Tinotenda Meke to ensure Zimbabwe win the game.
