Navaya not carried away by debut goal

New boy Washington Navaya had a dream start to his life at the club as his solitary goal powered Bosso to a Chibuku Super Cup first round match victory against Bulawayo Chiefs at Barbourfields stadium on Sunday.

Navaya scored his debut goal 42 minutes into the game, ghosting in from the blind side to head home a good cross from Divine Mhindirira from the left side.

It was well worked and finished goal which deserved to be witnessed and celebrated by a packed Barbourfields stadium, but thanks to Covid-19, the Highlanders faithful could only watch the match from the comfort of their homes.

Navaya, the younger brother to the late former Highlanders player Makreza could not be carried away by his beautiful and important goal which sealed the victory for Bosso as he believes there is still a lot of work to be done.

“I was very excited after scoring that goal, but it’s now water under the bridge. It was a team goal. We played as a team and got the reward. We are now focusing on our next match and I hope I will score again and help others to score so that the team collects maximum points,” said Navaya.

The win put Bosso in second place, tied on three points with Group B leaders Chicken Inn, who beat Bulawayo City 2-0 on Saturday.

Bosso face Chicken Inn at the same venue this coming weekend.
