THE Warriors squad for the COSAFA Cup is expected to be announced this week.
Little Rock Stars’ Nyasha Dube and Hamburger SV Jonah Fabisch are expected to be in the team together with Simba SC striker Perfect Chikwende and Golden Arrows striker Knox Mutizwa.
Warriors general manager Wellington Mpandare said:
“We are waiting for clearance from government for us to participate at the tournament.
“We are expecting to announce the squad this week and, if all goes well, we are to start camp on the 27th and leave for SA on July 4.
“The coach wants to use fringe players like I said before. The coach wants to use this tournament to assess players especially those who haven’t had a chance to play in the AFCON qualifiers.
“If they impress they’re also likely to play in the World Cup qualifiers. There won’t be regulars in this tournament because we want to give others a chance.
“And also their clubs won’t allow them because it’s not part of the FIFA calendar. It’s unfortunate that the coach only had to see the Harare based players in action.
“He had a plan of watching all over the country but the break came early and could not see them.”
Some of the players expected on the squad are Last Jesi, Carlos Mavhurume, Brian Banda, Kelvin Moyo, Partson Jaure, Qadr Amini, Aubrey Chirinda, Andrew Mbemba and Evans Rusike, King Nadolo, Godknows Murwira.
