The Zimbabwe senior Men’s Football team came from 2 goals behind to force a draw with Malawi in their second Cosafa Cup Group B tie played at Isaac Wolfson Stadium, Nelson Mandela Port Elizabeth, South Africa.

Goals by Blessing Sarupinda in the 62nd minute and Ben Musaka after 77 minutes of play ensured Zdravko Logarusic’s men did not end the match empty handed.
