THERE are some names in sport which have a huge meaning.
A name like Jordan.
It represents greatness, forever immortalised in the heroics of the basketball legend, Michael Jordan.
He is widely regarded by many as the greatest basketball player of all-time.
During his time, he inspired the Chicago Bulls to six NBA titles, in which he transformed the team into a global sports franchise.
Before Jordan’s arrival, the Bulls had never won the NBA championship.
They are yet to win another NBA title, since Jordan left.
The Warriors have their own Jordan, certainly not as great as the Bulls’ Jordan, but one who wants to change the face of his team.
Jordan Zemura is still a rookie in international football but he has already made a mark for the Warriors.
On Tuesday, he flew into Cameroon, where he is expected to make his debut at the AFCON finals.
The AFC Bournemouth player, who was still in England due to Covid-19 complications, is expected to join the Warriors camp in Bana, Cameroon, on Wednesday.
“I can’t wait to join the boys, and represent my Zimbabwe. Two important games to get out of the group, everything is possible,” tweeted Zemura.
Zemura is expected to join Wednesday’s training session ahead of their match against Malawi on Friday.
Warriors team manager Wellington Mpandare told H-Metro that Zemura’s availability would be a boost for the team.
“Jordan Zemura left England on Tuesday (yesterday) and is expected to arrive in Cameroon the same day.
“He will, however, join the rest of the team tomorrow (today) and is expected to join training in the afternoon.
“Since we can’t get a flight from Yaounde to Bafoussam, we have organised one of the cars that have been allocated for us to pick him,” said Mpandare.
The team manager said Zemura’s arrival comes as a positive development ahead of the clash against the Flames of Malawi.
Zimbabwe are going into the match looking for an outright win to keep hopes of qualifying for the knockout stage alive.
Zimbabwe lost 0-1 to Senegal on Monday.
The Flames also lost by the same scoreline to Guinea.
The Malawians were the better team in that game and fluffed a number of good chances.
