Takudzwa Chitsiga Sports Reporter
Zimbabwe Under-15 Copa Coca-Cola boys and girls teams yesterday returned home from their regional camp in Durban, South Africa. The boys and girls teams of eight players each were under the guidance of coaches Eremu Joseph Madzinga and Yeukai Chiruvu and said they learnt a lot from the tour. The 12 players were selected during the annual Copa Coca-Cola national finals in Gwanda.
The Dream Team players had time to meet players from seven other countries — Botswana, Swaziland, Lesotho, Zambia, Malawi and South Africa — in an exchange programme. Benni McCarthy and Steve Pienaar addressed the players, who took part in some five-aside matches though they all failed to progress past the group stages. Speaking after their arrival yesterday afternoon, Rusununguko High School’s Oscar Magejo, who was the boys captain, said they enjoyed their stay in South Africa.
