Warriors- Zebras match tickets go on sale

HARARE - Tickets for Zimbabwe's tie against Botswana set for Tuesday will not be sold on match day, Botswana Football Association communications manager, Phakamile Kraai has said.

The national team, which will be playing under the banner of the Young Warriors, face the Zebras at the Gaborone National Stadium in a match that is part of celebrations to mark Botswana's Independence.

"We will start selling this afternoon (yesterday). But we are not selling at the stadium, not even on match day," Kraai told Botswana media yesterday, adding they had designated sell points.

"People can buy tickets at Orange outlets; River walk, Main mall, Game city and Bus rank."

ZPC Kariba coach Saul Chaminuka will take charge of the Warriors in the absence of head coach Calisto Pasuwa, who will be in Egypt for a Fifa training programme for national team coaches.

Chaminuka, who will be assisted by Hwange's Nation Dube, said they were looking to use the match to assess the selected players "to determine if they are the crop to take us to the next level.

"This is the first time many of these guys have been together.

"However, we have confidence in the selected players and the technical team is optimistic of grinding a positive result in Botswana," Chaminuka said.

Out of the 18-man squad that will do duty for Zimbabwe, DC Academy's Rodwell Rusere is the only player named who plies his trade in the lower division.

The Young Warriors are scheduled to play Tanzania and Morocco on October 8 and November 16,  respectively.

Squad: Bernard Donovan (How Mine), Tatenda Mukuruva (Dynamos), Blessing Moyo  (Dynamos), Praise Tonha (Triangle), Liberty Chakoroma (Buffaloes), Kelvin Moyo (FC Platinum), Lawrence Mhlanga (Chicken Inn), Tafadzwa Mavunga (ZPC Kariba), Ronald Pfumbidzayi (Caps United), Nqobizitha Masuku (Bantu Rovers), Wisdom Mutasa (FC Platinum), Brian Muzondiwa (Black Rhinos), Walter Musona (FC Platinum), Emmanuel Mandiringa (How Mine), Tafadzwa Kutinyu (Bantu Rovers), Gabriel Nyoni (Highlanders), Knox Mutizwa (Highlanders), Rodwell Rusere (DC Academy)
