Career

Mushure started his career with former premier league outfit Monomotapa Football Club. Having had a short stint with Monoz, Mushure was eventually signed by Dembare where he proved to be very solid in defence.[5] In his career with Dynamos, he has had some very outstanding performances, some of those include a solitary strike against perennial rivals, Highlanders Football Club.

During his time in the Zimbabwe Premier Soccer League, Mushure won four league titles with two clubs, one with Monomotapa and three straight championships with Dynamos. Mushure also won the Mbada Diamonds Cup with Dynamos in 2012.[1]

In April 2021, Mushure won his first silverware in Zambia after helping his Lusaka Dynamos side win the 2021 ABSA Cup. Dynamos beat the defending champions, Zesco United, 3-1 on penalties after the game had ended goalless at full-time.[6]

National Team

In 2017, Mushure was part of the national team squad that won a historic fifth Cosafa Castle Cup title in South Africa. In 2017, Mushure also captained Zimbabwe as they began their Africa Nations Championships (Chan) campaign with a first leg qualifier in Namibia. [1]


Individual Awards

In 2017 Mushure was voted the second runner-up for the 2017 Soccer Star of the Year award which was won by Rodwell Chinyengetere. Mushure was not pleased with the outcome and was quoted by a publication saying:

"I’m not really happy to be voted the second runner-up. I thought I deserved better because of the contribution I made to the team this season. Compare the work that I did with the quality that was around me, and that of those who have been chosen ahead of me, I think I did better. The panellists should be rational when choosing the best players of the season."
