Striker Rudo Neshamba scored a hat-trick on her return to the national team as the Mighty Warriors beat Angola 4 -1 in their opening game of the 2019 COSAFA Senior Women's Championship in Port Elizabeth in South Africa this morning.
Neshamba who last played for the Mighty Warriors at the 2016 Rio Olympics opened her account in the 34th minute, just seconds after midfielder Emmalulate Msipa had opened the scoring for Zimbabwe.
Neshamba then added her second on the stroke of half time before she completed her hat trick in 59th minute to cap a memorable return to the national team.
The Mighty Warriors will now play Mozambique in their second group C game on Friday.
