Following the Somalian loss that left tounges wagging and fans upset, The Zimbabwe Warriors’ gaffer has beseeched the Warriors to put 100% effort in today’s game against Lesotho to be played this afternoon in Harare.
That Somalia game is past now, that was real close, but the good thing is, we have qualified for the group stages. What is needed from now going forward is proper planning because failing to plan is planning to fail.
We now need to all pull in one direction, and that begins with 100 per cent effort in this CHAN adventure, then we turn our attention to the upcoming African Cup of Nations qualifiers. I don’t look at history; but prefer to look at the assignment at hand. This game is a new ball game altogether, It’s a new challenge.
The CHAN Qualifying match against Lesotho will be the last in the series with the return leg to be played in Lesotho next month. After that Antipas’ boys will embark on an AFCON qualifiers’ series against Botswana and Zambia in November.
As for today, Prince Dube will lead the Warriors frontline, flanked by Phineas Bamusi and Valentine Kadonzvo.
Here is the final squad:
Goalkeepers: Ariel Sibanda, Simbarashe Chinani.
Defenders: Ian Nekati, Xolani Ndlovu, MacClive Phiri, Partson Jaure, Peter Muduwa.
Midfielders: Ian Nyoni, Tichaona Chipunza, Obriel Chirinda, Valentine Kadonzvo, Ralph Kawondera, Nqobizitha Masuku, Phenias Bamusi, Sipho Ndlovu.
Strikers: Wellington Taderera, Prince Dube, Never Tigere.
