Zimbabwe’s coach Kalisto Pasuwa believes the team that scores the highest number of goals in Group L stands a better chance of qualifying for Gabon 2017.

Zimbabwe collected maximum points in the second leg of the 2017 Africa Cup of Nations qualifier against Swaziland on Monday afternoon in Harare.

Knowledge Musona handed the Warriors the lead from the penalty spot in the second half. Three goals followed and Pasuwa’s men walked away with a 4-0 victory against the visitors.

Zimbabwe lead  the group with eight points from four games. Their next match is against Malawi in June.

“I think considering the fact that we scored four goals the group may be decided by goals. This is an advantage for us as the group may be decided on goal difference,” said Pasuwa.

“We need to put more in terms of our preparations. Malawi are also playing well so we need to prepare for the game against them,” he added.
