The Zimbabwe Young Warriors will troop into camp this Monday for an intensive week long training session ahead of the COSAFA showdown slated for Zambia from the 6th to the 16th of December.

Indications have come through that most Premier Soccer League clubs will only release their players for national duty after the curtain comes down on the PSL this Saturday (tomorrow).

The Young Warriors were seeded in Group C alongside Angola, Lesotho and Namibia while defending champions and hosts Zambia are in Group A together with Swaziland, Uganda and Malawi.

2016 runners up South Africa’s Amajita are in Group B which also features Egypt who are on an invitational ticket, Mozambique and Mauritius.

The Young Chipolopolo lifted the coveted trophy after edging South Africa’s Amajita 2-1 in Rustenburg last year.
