THE Zimbabwe U16 football team beat Zambia 4-3 on penalties to reach the 2019 Copa Coca-Cola final on Wednesday morning in Kenya.

The match had ended 2-2 after regulation time and the Young Warriors booked a place in the final with a shootout victory.

Zimbabwe is yet to lose a game at the finals and will be hoping to go all the way when they play Tanzania in the final on Thursday.

Coach Pathias Mauto’s boys have represented the country with distinction and there have been calls for him to keep his team intact when he returns home.

Zimbabwe’s success at Youth tournaments has exposed the Zimbabwe Football Association which this week failed to send the U20s to the Cosafa finals.
