Warriors’ striker Tinotenda Kadewere is optimistic of Zimbabwe’s chances of holding their own at the Africa Cup of Nations tournament which roars into life on the 21st of next month.

The spotlight will in the coming weeks be on the AFCON to be hosted by Egypt in 25 days time and Zimbabwe will be among the nations battling for a place in the knockout stage of Africa’s football extravaganza.

Kadewere who is among the players vying for a place in the Warriors  final 23-man squad to travel to Egypt, is positive of Zimbabwe’s prospects at the finals and is hopeful of reproducing club form in national colours.

“I just want to do my best and perform to the best of my ability. I am obviously first hoping to make it into the 23 man squad to travel to Egypt and after that I want to do well for my country and replicate the form that I have shown for my club Le Havre as I play for Zimbabwe,” he said.

Kadewere has shown good form for his French club Le Havre since moving from Djurgadens in Sweden.

The former Harare City player is among players that will be looking to make an impression for Zimbabwe at Africa’s biggest football showpiece in Egypt.

Before AFCON, Kadewere will also have an opportunity to rekindle form exhibited at last year’s COSAFA tournament when Zimbabwe do battle in Southern Africa’s regional showpiece in Durban, South Africa.
