Mighty Warriors have booked their place in the final round of the Africa Women Cup of Nations qualifier after sending Eswatini to the cleaners on a 6-1 aggregate scoreline.

The Sithethelelwe “Kwinji 15” Sibanda charges won the first leg 3-1 at the National Sports Stadium last week and they followed that up with a 3-0 victory away this Tuesday.

They will now face either Angola or Botswana in the two-legged decider for a place at the AWCON finals to be staged in Morocco in June next year.

In a match they largely dominated, Zimbabwe scored through veteran Marjoury Nyaumwe, Shyline Dambamuromo and Maudy Mafuruse.

As soon as Nyaumwe found her range in the opening 10 minutes of the match, Zimbabwe never looked like relaxing.
They kept on piling the pressure on their hapless hosts who rarely breached the guests defensive unit.
