WARRIORS interim coach, Baltemar Brito has promised to give fans something to cheer about as they embark on the trip to Rwanda for back-to-back 2026 Fifa World Cup qualifiers against the hosts and Nigeria.

The opening match against Rwanda is on November 15 while the supposed home clash against the Super Eagles of Nigeria will be at the same Huye Stadium in Kigali four days later.

CAF have not yet approved any stadium in Zimbabwe for international matches although government efforts are underway to ensure that at least the National Sports Stadium is re-approved following adjustments spelt out by the world governing body.

Last week Brito, who has not had the best of preparations, called up a provisional 28-member squad with 20 foreign-based players he has hardly watched due to his commitments at Highlanders in the domestic Premiership.

However, speaking through the Zifa platforms yesterday, Brito implored the nation to rally behind the Warriors in the forthcoming 2026 FIFA World Cup qualifiers.

Brito believes the Warriors need the support of the nation to have a good start to the 2026 FIFA World Cup qualifiers.

Zimbabwe are in Group C alongside Rwanda, Nigeria, South Africa, Benin and Lesotho.

“Let’s unite and rally behind the national team. We are here to try to do our best, Everyone is here to do their best, so we expect the nation to give the best of support. We will try to create a good moment for them (fans).”
