Zimbabwe are four-time champions in the
Cosafa Senior Challenge and one of the regions powerhouses. Their last triumph
came in 2009 when they hosted the tournament and beat Zambia 3-1 in the
Prior to that they were victorious in 2005
in Mmabatho, again beating Zambia in the final.
In 2003, they easily beat Malawi in the
decider, winning both legs for a 4-1 aggregate triumph. Their success in 2000
in the final against Lesotho brought to an end a long spell of poor luck for
the nearly-men of African soccer, who for more than two decades have
consistently narrowly failed to qualify for both the World Cup and African
Nations Cup finals.
That changed with the Warriors qualifying
for the Nations Cup finals in Tunisia in 2004. They also competed at the 2006
finals in Egypt.
Zimbabwe previously had success in the East
and Central African Senior Challenge Cup, winning when they hosted the
tournament in 1985. At club level, Dynamos of Harare reached the final of the
African Champions League in 1998.
They have dropped out of the last two recent
Cosafa Senior Challenge tournaments without conceding a goal losing 5-4 on
penalties to Mozambique in 2007 and Zambia in 2008 following goalless draws.
