Pasuwa has revealed that he has struggled to convince clubs in Zimbabwe to release players for the Young Warriors' squad.
"We are facing a challenge ahead of this game. We will have to do with the players we have," he told Newsday.
"I have been telling the players it's a chance to prove themselves.
"This is a national cause and I thought our clubs would release players we had requested for this game.
He says some clubs refused to release players, claiming they were injured, only for them to feature in games over the weekend.
The situation has been very disruptive for the Young Warriors squad who have not been able to effectively prepare for the game and still do not have a full squad three days before the game.
"With Dynamos and Highlanders we have been communicating well, but at the weekend, they requested players for the ZNA Charity Shield.
"I don't know if Highlanders will release the players since they also have a league game this weekend.
"It's a problem because the three Highlanders players Teenage Hadebe, Thomas Chideu and Nqobizitha Masuku are key players.
"FC Platinum had initially promised the players would join camp upon their return from Tanzania, but they proceeded to Zvishavane on arrival," he said.
