The former Zimbabwe Saints gaffer says he believes in the capacities of Zimbabwean teams qualifying for the 2013 Africa Cup of Nations and even more for the four African Safari representatives.

He said the teams need to prepare well on time and also support from the locals to ensure the teams achieve maximum performances.


Away from the New Year’s advice, Mashinkila and fellow football icon Moses ‘Bambo’ Chunga had time to wish Zimbabweans a merry Christmas.


With the Africa Cup of Nations qualifiers just around the corner and the African Safari’s journey coming in for Dynamos, FC Platinum, Motor Action and Hwange FC, 2012 promises to be action packed with football festivities such as the AFCON finals taking place this January in Gabon and Equatorial Guinea.
