Zimbabwe 3 - 0 Liberia

Zimbabwe Warriors' captain Knowledge Musona hit a hat-trick as his new-look national side beat Liberia 3-0 in their 2019 Africa Cup of Nations qualifier in Harare on Sunday.

Musona took over the captaincy after Willard Katsande - who had skippered the Warriors at this year's Nations Cup in Gabon - was dropped.

Belgium-based Musona heralded in a new era for Zimbabwean football with a sterling performance in the Group G encounter.

Musona's first strike came on 24 minutes, with Zimbabwe taking that one-goal advantage into the break.

His second came just five minutes into the second half and the Warriors captain was able to celebrate his hat-trick with a goal in the 63rd minute.

The result puts Zimbabwe top of Group G, after DR Congo beat Congo Brazzaville 3-1 on Saturday.
