The crème de la crème: Maringwa

Dynamos veteran striker, Desmond Maringwa, was on cloud nine following his team’s hard-won victory over Motor Action in the Mbada Diamonds Cup final. He described his team as the crème de la crème of Zimbabwean football.

The win on Sunday ensured Dynamos completed a League and Cup double that were a result of a determined fighting spirit, considering the fact that the other teams they were competing are forces to reckon with.

“Heavy rains during the match, coupled with a poor drainage system led to water logging at the National Sports Stadium were not enough to dowse the Dynamo flame since our modus Vivendi was to win the Cup at all costs,” he said.

“The fact that we came from 10 points behind log leaders FC Platinum towards the close of the season to beat them to the PSL title means we are, and will always be, the champions of Zimbabwean football. Our focus now is on the African safari where we want to be the Champions of African football clubs.

I hope if money continues to flow into our coffers we will invite one of the English clubs like Manchester United for a friendly match in Zimbabwe where we will be expecting to win to prove to the world that Dynamos are indeed champions,” Maringwa said.

Dynamos had their winning goal in the second half. Although Motor Action were the more dangerous side after coming from the goalless first half, they were punished after they missed many chances that came their way.

Rodrick Mutuma’s solitary goal came in the 76th minute after he pounced on a rebound from a shot by Denver Mukamba to fire home the only goal that sank the Mighty Bulls.
