The Warriors technical department has drafted a 27-man squad for next month’s World Cup qualifiers.
Coach Loga said they have already come up with names for the back-to-back World Cup qualifiers against South Africa and Ethiopia.

“About our boys who should play in World Cup qualifiers, most of them are regular starters except Tino (Kadewere) who is coming from injury.

“We have first game at home against South Africa, big game, big derby. We know what we have to do and the next game is against Ethiopia and those games are tricky and we have to get a result.

“About criteria for the players to play next month, it’s a bit trick because we are coming from off season, most of them started preseason four weeks ago. “But we are going to call most of the players we have used already before. We have made the list of 27 players and waiting for response from the clubs and Covid-19 restrictions (issues) because Zimbabwe is still in the red zone.

“But we are Warriors and we have to find a way out,” said Loga.

Meanwhile, Warriors manager Wellington Mpandare, who is in Cameroon for the draw, attended a workshop in preparations for the finals.
“The workshop here was very useful and we discussed about the venues, distance from the hotels to match venues and training pitches. Also get progress on the venues and training pitches, we talked about transportation since some of the games will not be played in Yaounde.

“And on our players, having them active is an advantage to us because they are fresh. We are happy with their performance. Most of them are playing and we are hopeful no one will pick injuries. We had injury worries in Terrence Dzvukamanja and Prince Dube. We are happy Terrence played and Prince we are still monitoring him,” said Mpandare.
