A prophet rallies support for Zimbabwe against Nigeria




After the initial turmoil in the camp of Zimbabwe ahead of their World Cup qualifying match against Nigeria, fans are being rallied round to support the Warriors of Zimbabwe.

They are being led by Prophet Walter Magaya who called on the Zimbabwe national team to keep the eye on the ball when they face Nigeria in a 2026 World Cup qualifier at Huye Stadium in Butare, Rwanda this afternoon.

The match kicks off at 2pm Nigeria time.

Zimbabwe are the home team after they decided to remain in Rwanda following their goalless draw in the opening game against Rwanda last Wednesday.


There is no approved stadium in Zimbabwe to host an international match and this is the first time that the Warriors have had to play a home game on foreign soil.
