Timire’s knee injury and a hip problem for Kaitano forced the duo to sit out an afternoon training session though the technical department was confident the two will recover.

Young Mighty Warriors’ assistant coach, Sithethelelwe Sibanda, who spent the better part of this month gearing up for the tie, expressed confidence in the team’s ability to triumph.

Despite boasting of several regulars from the Mighty Warriors, Sibanda said they are wary of the consequences complacency could bring.

The Mozambique Under 20 team was scheduled to arrive in the capital this Thursday evening ahead of Sunday’s crunch Women’s Under 20 World Cup qualifier.

Meanwhile, Zimbabwe women’s football is set to unveil Marange Resources as their new sponsor at a ceremony to be held in Harare on Friday.

The package includes all women’s national teams as well as the National Women’s League.
