Zimbabwean soldier Philip Marufu struck the only goal as the Zimbabwe Defence Forces (ZDF) select football side defeated Lesotho Defence Force (LDF) 1 – 0 to lift the ZDF trophy in Harare on Tuesday.
The match, which had to be played for 80 minutes instead of the usual 90 minutes having kicked off late, was part of several activities held to commemorate the Zimbabwe Defence Forces Day.
Lesotho Defence Force coach, Motheo Mohapi, was disappointed with the result.
Mohapi told Zimbabwean media that: “We lacked cohesion and we should have done better. We weren’t mobile in midfield and wasted a lot of chances upfront.”
The win meant the ZDF team have retained the title they won against the Malawi Defence Forces last year. NW
