Summoned for the first time in the selection of Zimbabwe on the occasion of the double confrontation against Algeria in the qualifiers of the CAN -2021, the young full-back of the English formation of Bournemouth (Championship – League 2) and the Warriors, is fixated on Mahrez, and for good reason, the young 20-year-old born in England, has already faced the Algerian from Manchester City last September, during a Carabao Cup meeting (Coupe de la Ligue)

A match certainly lost by Bournemouth (2-1), but during which Zemura believes he has succeeded in his mission to block Mahrez A feat that the young defender announces he wants to repeat during the double confrontation against the Greens This is what he explains in a statement to Zimbabwe Daïly, in his edition yesterday “As good as it is (Mahrez, editor’s note), you don’t have to rush through challenges, you shouldn’t think you’re going to win the ball all the time Sometimes you are not going to win You might lose it, but how you recover and how you plan the next move is crucial

Because if you can relax and calm down, you gain respect in that regard If the coach trusts me in my position, I will be ready for him (Mahrez, editor’s note) more than the last time and I will be ready forever, ”announces Zemura, referring to his first meeting with Mahrez, and he will not miss not to talk about it:

“When I played against Man City, one of the greatest teams in England, it was a good challenge I was playing Mahrez and Kyle Walker on my right side so it was an uphill battle but I think I did well I had a good game, defensively, I did everything I could”

Recognizing the quality of the Algerian selection, highlighting his status as African champion and especially his great series of invincibility during his last 20 outings, Zemura is confident He still believes that the Warriors can claim at least three points in the two confrontations, while insisting on the respect of his opponent: “To play against players of this quality, you must give respect and they can respect you too. … Algeria is currently African champion, so it’s a good team They haven’t lost in 20 matches, so it’s a tall order, but for us it’s the only way to assess you

If you play against the best you know how good you are as a player If we can come out of both matches with three or more points, then we put ourselves in a very good position because Algeria is a very good team, “concludes the young defender.
