The sitting coach taking care of the warriors for the mean time Sunday Chidzambwa has named a strong squad for the COSAFA Cup tournament to be held in South africa’s North West province from June 25-July 9. This squad is entirely different from the Super squad that played Liberia in the Africa Cup of nations qualifiers but still remains very strong. Zimbabwe have been ever-present in the Cosafa Cup, participating in each edition from the inaugural 1997 tournament onwards.

The foreign based players making the team include the South African based players George Chigova, Ovidy Karuru, Michelle Katsvairo,Knox Mutizwa and Eric Chipeta. Zimbabwe is in group B alongside Mozambique, Madagascar and the Seychelles and without any doubt the warriors stand out as the strongest team in the group. The Warriors have to play Mozambique on the 26th, Madagascar on the 28th and Seychelles on 30 June before they can claim their place in the quater finals. This time around the Senior team has shown great standard of play as reflected by the quality of players available and the nation is expecting nothing less of them as they enter this competition which they have won a record 4 times. Zimbabwe and Zambia are the top teams that have won the tournament more than any other teams in the region with both of them tied at 4 cup victories.
