WARRIORS captain Knowledge Musona said he will have to see if he is fit to play on Sunday.
Zimbabwe play Congo Brazzaville in a 2019 Afcon decider at the National Sports Stadium.
The game kicks off at 3pm.
Musona, who kept the nation guessing on his availability, has assured fans a win.
“I went for a scan and saw strain on my groin, they say it’s nothing big so l will see in the next coming days on how l will recover.
“I’m feeling okay at this moment but l think l have to go to the field and then try do to the things that l was not doing because of pain and then see how l will be feeling.
“But at this moment l feel normal, l have no pain but l just have to go and kick the ball,” he said.
Musona said they are not under pressure going into this game and will just play their usual game.
“I think there’s not much pressure from me and l think also from the guys.
“We just have to play like we used to from the beginning, so l think it’s a matter of doing and finish what we started.
“Because we only lost once in the campaign and as you know we have a good record at home.
“So we are just going for a win, a draw is enough, we have to win and make the country proud.
“So I think there’s no pressure, we just want to deliver like we did before,” he said.
The Sporting Lokeren star has promised to give his best if he recovers to play on Sunday.
“Supporters can expect the performance that we put on in all our home games and l think they are looking forward to watch the game and watch us qualify for Egypt, he said.
Musona, who was loaned by his club Anderlecht to Lokeren, feels good to be getting game time again.
“Playing consistently feels very good, l must say that the first six months with Anderlecht were very tough for me because l didn’t get to play a lot and l managed to go to a team that really wanted me to play.
“And l was playing consistently so it really felt good, as a professional footballer you need to play week in week out and try to put yourself out there on the market and deliver for your club.
“So it was a great feeling, “he said.
Musona said he will consider his future at the end of the season.
“I have a three-year contract with Anderlecht, so when the season ends l will see what happens because l’m still an Anderlecht player.
“I’ve got three more years on the contract and you know in football you can expect anything.
“Maybe they will say come back and l will get to play more or l will find another team to go and play so nobody knows at this moment.”
