zim-warriors.jpgThe Zimbabwe Warriors who were supposed to have left yesterday for Cape Verde for the final qualifier match for next year’s Africa Cup of Nations are now scheduled to leave Tuesday evening.


The development follows government’s intervention to finance the trip.


The locally-based Warriors will hook up with South Africa-based players in Johannesburg tonight before flying to Senegal en-route to Cape Verde.

European based players are expected to fly directly to the Atlantic-Ocean Island from their bases.

Meanwhile, Edward Sadomba, who played for his Sudanese Club Al-Hilal in a champions league tie on Sunday night, has been ruled out of the Cape Verde game after he suffered a shoulder injury during that tie.


Dynamos striker Cuthbert Malajila has now been roped into the team to replace Sadomba.


Warriors’ Manager Sharif Mussa revealed that Star midfielder, Ovidy Karuru, who has been struggling with an injury for the past two weeks, has assured them that he is getting better and will be ready for the Cape Verde test.


The Warriors are now scheduled to arrive in Praia tomorrow.
