PETER Muduhwa will captain the Warriors in their first international match on foreign soil when they take on Botswana in Gaborone tomorrow.

New coach Baltemar Brito took his men through their paces at Botswana Football Association Lekedi Football Centre.

The first one started at 10am while the second workout was held just after lunch.

Captain Muduhwa said:

“As players, we are very happy that the country is back to playing international football after a long time. 

“This is a development that will benefit the players, clubs and the nation at large. 

“Everyone always dreams to play for the national team and, as players, we are very much pleased and we will need more support from our fans.”

He added:

“The training sessions that we had were okay. You could tell from the movement that there is some understanding within the players, we are used to each other. 

“There are very few that we have who have not played together.”

Liberty Mugari, who is part of the Zimbabwe Football Association (Zifa) communications department, said all was well in camp.

The trio of Thubelihle Jubane of Sheasham, Manica Diamonds’ Trevor Mavhunga and Clive Mandivhei of Yadah were last minute additions.
