HARARE – The Zimbabwe Football Association (ZIFA) has announced a relatively strong Warriors squad for the Qatar 2022 FIFA World Cup Qualifiers matches against South Africa and Ethiopia.
The matches are scheduled for September 3 and 6 respectively.
Marshall Munetsi makes a return to the national team and will likely play for the first time under the tutelage of Zdravko Logarusic provided no complications arise.
Brendan Galloway, Jonah Fabisch and Macauley Bonne have been given an opportunity to redeem themselves with another national team call-up and probably a first official appearance.
Goalkeeper Washington Arubi makes a return to national duty while United States based goalkeeper Tatenda Mukuruva was the notable exclusion.
