A 30 member Mighty Warriors squad has been selected for national duty for the upcoming international match against Namibia on 5 April in Windhoek with army side Black Rhinos Queens providing six players.
The 30 member strong squad in expected to assemble in Harare on Monday next, while training proper begins on Tuesday morning.
Mighty Warriors head coach Sithethelelwe “Kwinje 15” Sibanda said she is travelling to Harare for the camp while all players called were expected to assemble in the capital by Monday next week.
Black Rhinos Queens continue to dominate the squad with players Felistas Muzongondi, Daisy Kaitano, Lynette Mutokuto, Emmaculate Msipa, Mavis Chirandu and Talent Mandaza.
Former Black Rhinos coach and Mighty Warriors assistant coach Weddington Chinyanganya is however a notable omission.
The Mighty Warriors finished second at the COSAFA senior women’s tourney held in Bulawayo last year and the match against Namibia will be the first engagement since the COSAFA event.
Meanwhile, the Zimbabwe women’s national soccer league is on a break and is expected to start on the 24th of this month with a leaner 14 teams, 12 from last season plus two promoted sides, Magwagwe from Bulawayo and City of Harare Queens.
The unified women’s league had 24 teams at the start but two pulled out leaving 22.
The league was blighted with chaotic congested fixtures, poor funding and ended prematurely.
The composition of this year’s league is yet to be known as selection was done on a first come basis for clubs who managed to clear their affiliation fees, player and technical team registration fees rather than competitiveness and ability to travel and fulfill fixtures.
