Warriors squad for Zambia friendly

Warriors squad for Zambia friendly
The Zimbabwe senior national soccer team has announced the squad a developmental squad that is expected to play Zambia in a friendly match at the newly built Levy Mwanawasa Stadium in Ndola on 8 August.

Coach Rahman Gumbo,  assistants Peter Ndlovu and David Mandigora have settled on a largely experimental side to play an equally experimental Zambian squad in Ndola.

Young players like Monomotapa  midfielder  Ronald Chitiyo, Dynamos defender Patson Jaure and goalkeeper George Chigova, leading Castle Lager PSL goal scorer Nelson Mazivisa and Dynamos attacking midfielder Denver Mukamba are likely to form the starting line-up on 8 August.

Having young players in a developmental side can only be good for the national soccer team. BUT what good will such a friendly match do to Zimbabwe's preparations for the tough final AFCON 2013 qualifier against tough opposition like Angola between September and October?

It is possible that the only value of the match is to give coach Gumbo a few players who will sit on the bench in the Angola encounter. What Zifa should focus on is to give the Warriors a friendly match which involves the Warriors' first team.

If it is proving difficult to get a friendly match, then a training programme in South Africa where the bulk of the national soccer team plays will be welcome. Alternatively, the Warriors should get a longer camp at home and an opportunity for a friendly match with one of the local clubs.
