Mmegi Online :: Clean bill of health for Zebras ahead of Warriors tie








Speaking to Mmegi Sport in a telephone interview from Harare yesterday, the team's welfare officer Patrick Zibochwa said they travelled over night by road from Francistown to Harare and arrived well at around 2:00 am yesterday.

"We arrived well, everyone in the team is fine and we are having our first training session right now," Zibochwa said this at noon yesterday.

He said no player in the team picked up injuries during their friendly match against TAFIC in Francistown yesterday before proceeding to Zimbabwe.

The full 19 -man squad only assembled together for the first time in camp on Sunday before leaving for Francistown as coach Stanley Tshosane was forced to train with only eight players in the past week because other players called to camp were held by club commitments.

Eight players who made it to the final squad are from Mochudi Centre Chiefs and Gaborone United and only joined the rest of the team on Sunday as their clubs were still preparing for their

upcoming CAF games.

All the four South African based players who are part of the team also joined the team for the first time in training on Sunday after arriving from their respective clubs.

Namibian based defender Pako Lekgari, who received his first national team call up also joined the team on Saturday.

When addressing a press conference on Saturday, Tshosane said they did not prepare adequately for the friendly game, but will go to Zimbabwe to put up a fight and pull a desired result.

Meanwhile Zimbabwe has announced a full strength squad for the tie that includes many of the South African and European based players.

The Warriors' South African contingent consists of among others goalkeeper Washington Arubi, Lincoln Zvasiya and Khama Billiat, while former Kaizer Chiefs star Knowledge Musona is part of the three European based stars in the team.  Today's match mark Klaus Dieter Pagels's debut as Zimbabwe coach after taking over from Rahman Gumbo. The match starts at 3:00 pm.
