🇿🇼Zimbabwe cruised into the quarterfinals of the COSAFA Cup 2017 after a commanding 6⃣-0⃣ win over Seychelles🇸🇨 that saw them top Group B.
Zimbabwe's progress came at the expense of 🇲🇬Madagascar who finished level on points with the Warriors after a 4⃣-1⃣ win over Mozambique🇲🇿, but lost out on goal difference.
Zimbabwe were in cruise control throughout their game and took the lead midway through first half when Karuru's shot deflected off the underside of the bar and in. He went on to add another soon before Dube rounded the goalkeeper and made it 3-0 in the second half. From then on, it was a rout for the Zimbabweans as Karuru completed his hat-trick before Mushure netted a double to turn the scoreline emphatic.
In the other game, Madagascar had to better Zimbabwe's result which would not happen ultimately, and started very well. Claudel Fanomezana scored twice, and Ranaivoson Ndrantoharilala and Rinjala Raherinaivo grabbed a goal each while Arnaldo grabbed the consolation for the Mambas.
Zimbabwe will now face Swaziland in the quarterfinal at Royal Bafokeng Sports Palace.
