Excitement has gripped soccer enthusiasts as the Zimbabwe senior men’s national team, the Warriors are set to lock horns with the Brave Warriors of Namibia in what promises to be an explosive CHAN qualifier at the National Sports Stadium tomorrow.
Smarting from a one nil loss suffered in Windhoek last week, the Warriors troop into the battlefield again aiming nothing but a victory that will steer them to the final round of the qualifiers where they will meet the winner between Lesotho and the Comoros Islands.
The last time the Warriors played at home was in June when they dispatched Liberia 3-0 in a 2019 AFCON qualifier, and hopes are high that the local based players will emulate the class of the Knowledge Musona led Warriors.
Fans are continuously checking their clocks eagerly awaiting for Sunday’s (tomorrow) kick off as they are expecting nothing but a win.
The match comes barely 48 hours after ZIFA president, Dr Philip Chiyangwa had been elected the chairman of a new bloc of countries, comprising of member associations in COSAFA, CECAFA and the northern zone that will seek to collaborate on matters of technical development, by integrating many components of their activities for synergy and progress.
This position ultimately makes the ZIFA boss extremely powerful.
He is viewed as the chief whip of CAF, working to mobilise voters during crucial debates and votes.
