After braving a goalless draw in preparatory friendly match against Nigeria at the Stephen Keshi Memorial Stadium in Osaba on Saturday evening, Zimbabwe's Warriors finalized their 23 men 2019 Total Africa Cup of Nations bound squad retaining a significant residue from the 2017 edition held in Gabon.
There are nine players retained from the Calisto Pasuwa coached side that campaigned at the last continental edition in Gabon but this time around the entire squad is drawn from talent plying their trade outside the country sounding a clear sign of intent.
Probably, Sunday Chidzambga preferred to bank on experience as the Southern Africa nation seeks to breach the group stage in their fourth edition but will have to carry the underdogs tag.
In an interview in Osaba before the team connected to Cairo on Sunday afternoon, captain Knowledge Musona reiterated that he believed the selection, which has a couple of new faces, was now capable of getting beyond the first round.
“We have a good team with good quality, and we are working hard to correct the mistakes from the last tournament. We have enough experience and our initial target is to pass out from the group stages for the first time.”
