YAOUNDÉ – The Warriors played a goalless draw against Sudan in a friendly match Sunday afternoon.

The Warriors created a lot of chances but failed to convert them with Prince Dube, Takudzwa Chimwemwe and Onisimor Bhasera coming close.

Coach Norman Mapeza made some changes with Thabani Kamusoko coming in for Kundai Benyu, Onisimor Bhasera for Kuda Mahachi and Talbert Shumba replacing Petros Mhari.

Kuda Mahachi and Petros Mhari were pulled out during the Warriors goalless draw against Sudan in a friendly match in Yaounde due to injury.

It has not yet been ascertained how big severe the injuries are.

The Warriors are looking at playing one more friendly match before taking on Senegal in their first match next Monday.
