HARARE City coach Mark Harrison is happy after four of his players from the juniors were selected in the Warriors Under-23 provisional squad.
The four, Hastings Chapusha, Collin Mujuru, Tatenda Tavengwa and Wilfred Muvirimi, make up the 27-member squad which is preparing for the second round Africa Cup of Nations qualifier against Mozambique this month.
Harrison says the call up of his players is a clear sign of how the Sunshine Boys junior policy is proving fruitful.
“It’s exciting that we have four of our players being called for national duty and are coming from the junior team.
“This shows that we have a vibrant youth squad which in itself makes a statement that we are in the perfect track,” he said.
He has refused to put pressure on the players but has confidence that they will make a good impact during the preparations.
“I cannot say we are guaranteed that all of our players will make it into the final select team, but the fact that those players were recognised is a big thing to consider.
“It is simply an indication that we are doing quite well as a team,” Harrison added.
The Young Warriors will kick-off their campaign on March 22 in Maputo away to Mozambique and the second leg is on March 26 in Harare.
With local based players already in camp, foreign based ones are expected next Monday.
