Zimbabwe’s Caps United beat Mighty Wanderers on Sunday at Kamuzu Stadium in the finals of the Zambezi Soccer Challenge to be crowned winners.
A 36th minute jet-fighter bomber header from Malawian striker Ishamel Thindwa was enough to inspire Caps United to the win.
Thindwa, formerly of Epac FC tormented the Nomads defence in the entire 90 minutes to the delight of his coach.
On several times the Zimbabwe out-fit caused havoc in the Nomads territory but thanks to Richard Chipuwa, who was brilliant in goals and saved many would-be goals.
The Nomads striking forced could not tick.
The combination of Innocent Dzimbiri and Victor Mpinganjira did not help matters for the Nomads as they lacked good coordination.
Despite introducing their former mid fielder Gerald Chimbaka, who is back from Mozambique, he Nomads were completely out-marked in all the departments by the visitors.
The Nomads, however nearly equalized in the second half when an intelligent header from Timothy Chitedze hit the crossbar to the disbelief of the Nomads fans who braved rains in Blantyre.
After the game when Caps players went to celebrate their victory, only Gerald Papa Phiri did not celebrate in respect of his former team Wanderers.
For being crowned champions, Caps will cart home the ultimate K3 million prize and a trophy.
