Zimbabwe is hoping to rekindle their qualification hopes when they face Uganda in a crucial Group ‘A’ encounter slated for the Cairo International Stadium tomorrow evening.

It will be a crucial day for the Warriors as they will need to avoid defeat against an organised Uganda in order to keep their qualification hopes alive.

Warriors’ head coach Sunday Chidzambwa and vice-captain Ovidy Karuru are clear of the challenge that lies ahead as they prepare to face off with a Uganda outfit which is brimming with confidence after an opening 2-0 win over DRC.

Having assessed the Egypt performance, Chidzambwa and Karuru believe anomalies have been rectified.

Uganda head coach Sebastien Desabre is expecting a tough contest against the Warriors while outlining the faith he has in the talent that the Ugandan Cranes have at their disposal.

Variously, the Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON) hosts Egypt, who are gunning for a record 8th title at 2019 tournament, will be hoping to take one foot into the knockout stage when they clash against DRC in another Group ‘A’ encounter at the same venue after the Warriors clash with the Cranes.
