Pasuwa called up 21 players, retaining the bulk of the team that managed the successful qualification of the Warriors for next year’s tourney in Gabon.
Zvirekwi is suspended for the ultimate clash whilst Billiat was left out due to his busy schedule with Sundowns in the Orange CAF Champions, where they have reached the last four.
“We have decided to let Khama Billiat rest because he has been busy with his club’s African commitments. We are looking to carry on with what we started in the qualifiers.
“This match is still important to the team because we are going to use it as a yardstick to measure our progress as a unit and our preparedness for the Gabon AFCON finals. That is why only Khama Billiat, whom we thought might have fatigue issues is the only regular player intentionally left out of the squad. We want to maintain our unbeaten record also” said Pasuwa.
Godknows Murwira and Nelson Chadya are the only new faces drafted in by the technical team.
The Gabon bound Warriors, unbeaten in five games sit comfortably at the top of the standings with 11 points, three more than Swaziland. Guinea has five points and Malawi in that order with two points.
