8 Zimbabwean young footballers trial for Panathinaikos


8 promising young footballers from the City Football Academy are set to trial for two European football teams, Spain’s Barcelona and Greece’s Panathinaikos.

The opportunity came about after the team excelled at the annual thanksgiving tournament held in Zambia, where scouts from both Barcelona and Panathinaikos were impressed by the youngsters.

The 8 are:

  1. Nigel Vhera (14),
  2. Kelvin Moses (13),
  3. Tinashe Kativhu (12),
  4. Kupakwashe Mazokera (11),
  5. Tadiwanashe Mavhurure (12),
  6. Blessing Chikwariro (14),
  7. Lawrence Muromo (13)
  8. Rishon Mazivire

Speaking about the impending trials, the academy’s coach Agrippa Guti said:

“Their attitude and level of professionalism was outstanding and as a result, they were picked by these teams. I’m sure this could be the beginning of big things in their careers. The boys will be leaving early next year either in February or March.”

“As City Football Academy we are really proud of these boys and we are confident they will go represent us and the country well. They are a group of young and talented footballers.”
