WARRIORS centre forward David Moyo scored for Hamilton in their 4-1 triumph against Motherwell in the Scottish premier league over the weekend.
After chipping in with some crucial goals in the 2019 season, the striker was rewarded with a two-year contract extension last year. The new contract will see him at the Scottish top-flight club Hamilton Academical until 2023.

He has however, failed to impress much during the current campaign but seems to be finding his form back after ending his 15-game goal drought when he scored Hamilton’s fourth goal after being introduced as a second half substitute.

The victory lifted Hamilton to second from bottom on the log standings level on points with bottom-placed side Ross County. Hamilton have managed to win one game in their last five league matches. So far this season Moyo has two goals and three assists to his credit and with the team struggling it means the Zimbabwean and his teammates have a lot of work to do in the remaining games in order to survive relegation.

Moyo made his senior national team debut last year November in the 2021 Africa Cup of Nations backto-back qualifiers against Algeria. He also played for the Warriors in November 2014, during a friendly match against Morocco and could be drafted in the 33-man provisional squad to face Zambia and Botswana next month.

Zimbabwe national technical department earlier indicated that they will becalling most of the players who were in the squad against Algeria last year. Earlier on Warriors manager Wellington Mpandaremsaid they have already started calling up players for camp after getting clearance from the SRC.

“Very soon the squad will be announced and we get the ball rolling with the locally-based players and our foreign based contingent will join us at a later stage as usual,” said Mpandare.
