Warriors are set to leave for South Africa for the COSAFA tournament.
The team has been dealt a huge blow after two players tested positive for Covid-19.

Godknows Chikwende
A close source confirmed to H-Metro that the players are believed to be Perfect Chikwende and Godknows Murwira who were sharing a room.

The two are reported to have already left camp and are in quarantine.

Three players who were part of camp have since pulled out.

The three are Kelvin Moyo, Jonah Fabisch and Knox Mutizwa.

Ben Musaka was made replacement and joined camp on Thursday.

Zimbabwe will play Mozambique on July 8, then Namibia on July 11 and the guest team on Thursday.

However, COSAFA has announced some fixture changes in this year’s tournament after Comoros withdrew from participating.

The Indian Ocean islanders were forced to pull out of the competition due to their government’s restrictions around the COVID-19 pandemic.

The team was drawn in Group B alongside defending champions Zambia, Malawi, and Madagascar.

The withdrawal means the teams in the pool will only play two games each, with the top-placed side progressing to the semifinals.

To level the playing field in the calculation for that best runner-up position, the results against the bottom sides in the four-team Groups A and C will not count.

The other fixtures remain the same.
