Preparations for the Warriors COSAFA camp have suffered a huge blow following revelations that 10 players from the provisionally announced squad will not make it for the regional tournament due to failure to secure travel documents and injuries.

The regional tournament kicks off in Polokwane, South Africa next Sunday, up to the 9th of next month.

Coach Sunday Chidzambwa said he is eager to defend his COSAFA title but also wanted to use the tournament to gauge his strength going into the Africa Cup qualifiers.
