A Louis William Philibert 22nd minute free kick was the difference in Port Louis as Moses Chunga’s charges.

It was a closely contested match in which both sides toiled for long periods looking for openings.

Efforts on goal, 4 (2 on target) for the hosts and 3 (2 on target) for Zimbabwe.

Botswana and Malawi are the same group. The latter won their tie 2-0, earlier the day.
