THE Mighty Warriors are not leaving anything to chance in their bid to qualify for the Africa Women Cup of Nations qualification with the side expected to resume training today for the return leg against Tanzania.

With the players who travelled to Tanzania already in camp at the ZIFA Village, the technical team was just waiting for those that were called back into the squad.

The team returned on Saturday.

The Mighty Warriors beat Tanzania 2-1 in their backyard and the return leg is scheduled for Harare on March 20.

Assistant coach, Sithethelelwe “Kwinji 15” Sibanda, said they wanted to continue from where they left off in Dar es Salaam.

“The girls are trooping into camp today. Some are already here. Obviously, we need to be better in terms of our fitness level and, of course, in terms of our tactical approach going into the second leg,” said Sibanda.

“Obviously, in the home game, the approach can differ.

“We will continue to work on the physical aspect. We should be starting training tomorrow (today) but of course we really have started today with the post-match analysis, looking at how we fared in the game, where we did well and on the negatives.
