The arrivals include Marshall Munetsi, Teenage Hadebe, Martin Mapisa, Divine Lunga, Terrence Dzvukamanja, Washington Arubi, and Tivonge Rushesha.
England-born Andrew Rinhomota, a potential debutant who plays for Cardiff City, stopped by the ZIFA offices in Harare on his way to Rwanda to join the rest of the Warriors squad.
Marshall Munetsi, sharing his thoughts ahead of the opening qualifier against Rwanda, emphasized the importance of a strong start to unsettle the opponents. Debutant Tivonge Rushesha expressed his pride in representing Zimbabwe for the first time and pledged to contribute to the team’s success in reaching the World Cup.
