2026 WCQ: Zimbabwe want to win against Super Eagles – Munetsi

Stade de Reims midfielder Marshall Munetsi has said Zimbabwe will go all out for a win when they file out against the Super Eagles of Nigeria on Sunday.

The 2026 FIFA World Cup qualifier will be held at Huye Stadium, Butare.

Baltemar Brito’s men will head into the game as the underdogs, but Munetsi is upbeat they can upset the Super Eagles.

“It’s going to be a good challenge against Nigeria and I’m sure it will be a game of fine margins,” Munetsi told the Herald.

“They played on Thursday and didn’t have much time to recover, so we can use that to our advantage.

“Obviously the team has big-name players, but even then, if they don’t have time to recover and all the travels, it might be difficult for them to adjust. We just need to be confident and have a good game plan for us to get maximum points.”

Zimbabwe held Rwanda to a 0-0 draw in their opening fixture in the qualifiers.

The Super Eagles, on the other hand, played a 1-1 draw with the Likuena of Lesotho on Thursday.
