VIDEO : WARRIORS FIGHT FOR A DRAW

Zimbabwe's Warriors were held to a 1-all draw at home to Guinea in an AFCON 2017 qualifier match played at Rufaro Stadium this Sunday. 
Goalkeeper, Washington Arubi's howler gifted Guinea an early goal inside the first minute but the Warriors clawed back to get an equaliser before half time.

Danny Phiri released Knowledge Musona to level terms with a cool finish that left the Guinea bench fuming as they thought Musona was off-side. 

Replays show the referee was spot on as Musona was played onside by the Guinea rightback who failed to time an off-side trap. 

It was however, Guinea's opener that left Zimbabwean fans ruing a missed opportunity to top Group L after Swaziland and Malawi drew 2-all in another encounter. 

Arubi failed to control the ball from a back pass and the Guinea striker pounced. 
Zimbabwe are however still joint top of Group L with Swaziland on four points apiece.
