Warriors captain Hardlife Zvirekwi says the team is focused on bouncing back after starting their CHAN 2016 campaign with a defeat.
Zimbabwe lost 1-0 to Zambia yesterday despite getting good scoring chances.
Fellow Group D opponents Mali and Uganda drew 2-2 a result that could favour the Warriors.
“It was very unfortunate that we lost I think. But we still have to pick up ,we should not lose hope the group is still open.
“We will work hard and try to force our way to the next stage. I think the guys are really pumped and willing to work hard to get a result in our next match.
