ZIMBABWE international forward, Prince Dube, turned out for his Tanzanian side, Azam FC, yesterday – just a day after the Warriors’ friendly international against the Flames in Blantyre on Sunday.
The in-form striker pulled out of that match, saying he was injured, but was back in action just 24 hours after the Warriors’ battle in Malawi.
Dube scored twice, including converting a penalty, in a friendly against Fountain Gate FC.
Azam, who powered to a comfortable 4-0 victory, fielded their three Zimbabwean players – Dube, Bruce Kangwa and Never Tigere.
The Tanzanian club, who have won all their first five league matches of the season, with Dube at the heart of their success story, were preparing for their league game against Mwadui on Thursday.
Dube was one of the regular members of the Warriors who pulled out of the friendly match in Malawi for various reasons.
His Warriors’ teammate, Kuda Mahachi, withdrew from the match, against the Flames, after testing positive for Covid-19.
This meant he was unable to travel from his base, in South Africa, to join his teammates in Harare ahead of the trip to the Malawi commercial capital.
SuperSport United chief executive, Stan Matthews, revealed yesterday that three of his players tested positive for the coronavirus.
Matthews said Mahachi had wanted his status to remain confidential but he ended up revealing his identity after his name appeared in this newspaper yesterday.
“Yes, it’s true, but he asked for confidentiality,’’ Matthews told Kick.Off.com.-The Herald
